PakistanTravels 2000

These images come from my trip through Pakistan as part of a 6 month 'winterless' journey across Asia in 2000/2001, timed so that I travelled through countries when they weren't too hot, and escaped them before cold weather came. This leg of the journey was sandwiched between Iran and India, and was therefore generally from west to east, though there was a necessary excursion to the capital Islamabad in the north to get a visa for India, and a few side trips along the way. The megacity of Karachi, to the south, was too far off my course to warrant a visit.

As in other sections, the images are placed in the order of my travels, and encompass, in order, Quetta, Multan, Bahawalpur, Uch Sharif, Faisalabad, Peshawar, Muzaffarabad, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, and Lahore (note: not all destinations have images in the gallery).

Delhi Deadlines by Sheldon Smith

A washed out journalist, posted to India to cover a bloody election campaign, uncovers truths about his son's life - and death - in the country, truths that test loyalties forged in the war zones of Bosnia and Rwanda. A fiercely evocative narrative of modern-day India, filled with the clamour and hot stinks of its capital, this is a novel of death woven through with life.

"The writing is very very good... the mysteriousness of Wyndham's death and the narrator's involvement will entice the reader to keep reading." - 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award (ABNA) Expert Reviewer
