Kashmir – On a magic carpet ride

Kashmir was one of the first projects promoting vedic culture. This spot is really easy to find. Our local Kashmir is located close to Vladimirskaya metro station, 7-minutes walk along Bolshashaya Moskovskaya. Then you can smell cardamom and cinnamon. It means you are on the right way. The entrance door that looks like one stolen from 1000 and 1 nights’ fairytale is the one you need.

Kashmir is the ambient spot with beautiful decor, candles and hookahs. Every vedic dish prepared here looks like a small piece of art. That is probably why Kashmir is very popular among lovebirds 🙂 

I forgot to tell you that music in Kashmir is distinguished. Once I met a couple here, who spontaneously visited Kashmir following the sound of music. Sitar, fado, salsa, Cesaria Evora and songs by Sovietic star Utesov come and go and make you feel like an Indian legend. 

For me one of the most interesting moment is the payment procedure. Why? Because I get a chance to predict your future. I got used to asking any question and pulling a piece of paper from the small velvet bag, that Kashmir girls always have with them. Then you can read some rhymes from rubais, which might be the answer to your question. 

Last time I was curious about my future and took the piece of paper with lines by Omar Khayam saying, that our future is always in the shadows, so it is better the enjoy today’s moment of your life.
