My account of our visit to Lahore over new year last year appeared as a guest post on Emily Luxton’s Blog.

It has turned out quite long, but at times it is difficult to shorten all you have experienced! Thank you for bearing with me for the length of the article. Hope you enjoy, and I do hope, that I have been able to give a little bit of a different perspective of what Pakistan is and that normal Pakistanis are challenged with domestic problems, let alone to be bothered about the bigger political stage and religious fanatics making life difficult! And yet Pakistani have their sense of hope and humor!
