If going to Kashmir causes to write unintelligible, disjointed narrative I can understand wanting to stay away.

Meh.  First world guy biatching about having to pay the local goons his first world tax.

How terrible.

The State Department's list of countries to ignore is a bit brief. I don't fly to Kashmir or any US state with mega churches.

You mean a lawless, contested border area between India and Pakistan might not be the best vacation spot? Shocking.

At least their goats are soft and silky.

I can honestly say that I've never listened to that song and wanted to go there. I can't even think of a reason for wanting to go there outside of "I really need to inject a lot more stress and annoyance into my life for blogging material."

But then I don't blog, so that settles that.

Wasn't Robert Plant inspired to write the song after travelling to Morocco? He was only 3000 miles off or so.

Huh, it must have really gone downhill since I stayed there.  I was able to check out any time I liked.

Whenever I listened to the song "Kashmir" all I thought was, damn, John Bonham kicks ass!
 
2014-04-13 06:17:14 PM  
Well, there was talk and song from tongues of lilting grace, whose sounds caress my ear - but not a word I heard could I relate, thought the story was quite clear, basically, you know?

That's really, really not where you're going to?

If you ever get out of here, that's not what you're gonna do?

There's good skiing to be had in Kashmir. I'm not kidding.

I wanted to try to go there on the tail end of a trip I'm taking to Nepal later this year but I just don't quite have enough vacation built up for it.

You can check out but never leave.

I'd like to go to Mozambique, the water is aqua blue, the couples dancing cheek to cheek.

I'm sure the song is at least as accurate as the Hurricane song.

No way boss.  I learned my lesson after I ended up in Kokomo, IN and couldn't even find a decent margarita.

I love Led Zeppelin.

But when I hear the chords and orchestration of Kashmir, what enters my mind is, "this is what is playing at the gates of Hell."

I'd rather take a train to Bangkok...

He should have been on the train to Bangkok, aboard the Thailand Express. I hear they only stop for the best.

Those two statements define juxtaposition.

Not really.  Considering Page's fascination with the Dark Arts, it might have been quite intentional.

I used to live there back in the 1990s.  It's actually not bad, or wasn't there.  Worst part about it was the air pollution.  We used to call it "The city of black snot."  Oh, and don't drink the water.  So, yeah, in terms of health and pollution, it's not that great.  But the people are nice, and there wasn't a lot of crime.

His narrative cheered me up a little bit because I'm so freaking tired of reading about Americans who absolutely, must vacation in some country right in the middle of a revolution, drop in to see the 'natives' when the place is all cheesed off at the USA and nearly everyone else and then get their butts in a sling.

There was some freakin' dirt nation in Africa back in the 70's that was undergoing a revolution and genocide and young Americans flocked there full of indignation, convinced they could make a difference and determined to report back on the atrocities of the corrupt government.

Some vanished. Some came back in body bags. At least one was recovered after his body was crammed and sealed up in a wall and the media had a field day. Smarter ones took one look at the insanity and bloodshed and headed right back home.

Time and again, I've read about tourists getting shot up, having to be smuggled out of countries, being tossed in jail for almost anything and having to stay there for years as their nations worked to get them out.

Personally, I choose not to go and visit some nation which is either on the verge of civil war or involved in one, to 'experience the local environment'. That can tend to get you killed and the majority of foreign prisons make US ones seem like kindergartens.

Ok, Mister Disney cruise, you probably think it's a bad idea for me to take that Priceline package to Kiev over the Mayday holiday?
