Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan

8 Feb

I desperately need to back blog! Spending an entire summer traveling made me feel like I had a thousand stories to share, waiting at the tip of my pen and tongue, but now that work has started and is well underway…well my life feels more uneventful and my motivation nonexistent. That being said, I have some recent pictures to share from in and around Lahore and Islamabad. They remind me that even during the dredges of working and writing report cards, I live in a fascinating place. The other evening I walked to the local market, bought some freshly fried sugar swirls and hot nan bread, yelled at a motorcyclist that almost ran over my feet (and at another one that called me ‘sexy lady’…”You call yourself a good Muslim with that mouth?” is a particularly good insult in these parts), bought some vegetables from a stand and had a lovely conversation with a local man who, upon hearing I was from Canada, instantly asked me, “Are you from Surrey?”. Of course the city this man’s brother lives in is also the one I’m from. Our world is pretty small for being so big.
