Day 133: First Glimpse of Pakistan

Finally reached Lahore, Pakistan today after 6 years! My first glimpses of the city this time around included a blend of familiar and new sights. The great amount of green fields visible from the plane was unexpected and beautiful. After landing, meeting beloved family members and seeing the expertly paved roadways on which people were driving in their designated lanes (kyaaaa?!) was spectacular. This gigantic purple billboard of Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif on our way home was a bold statement; apparently Katrina is an absolute favorite and is much loved here in Pakistan.

Oh, and if you're curious, that's a "Dunkin' Donuts" bag my khala (mother's sister) is holding.


  1. woohooo! Enjoy your stay in Pakistan!
