|Our last group shot-bittersweet!|
This blog is full of random photo's I have taken and they are in no particular order. Yesterday (Monday) was another interesting day. This week classes are 6 hours for 3 days so we are busy trying to finish up loose ends-Seems like there is never enough time. I have a full fledged, stuffy nose, hacking cough cold so my voice is coming and going and I am probably freely spreading my germs (Great). After class, Sidiq (the driver) took me over to the City Campus -where I was interviewed by a reporter from the Express Tribune, Ali Usman. The article is below. I hope the link works!
Interview with the Express Tribune
|My students swear by Johar Joshanda. It did help me get through the class today!|
Right after school I went on a tour (courtesy of Naazish Ataullah) of Aitchison College (a prep school in Lahore). Maryam is a friend of the family and arranged for me to have the tour and tea with the principal's family. This school is unbelievable and looked like something out of a fairy tale. Tomorrow I will blog on that because it deserves a page all of its own.
|I've mentioned the UPS systems many families have to use here. These are big battery packs that charge while the electricity is on and when it goes out (as it always does) they power the fans, lights and a few other appliances.|
|You see these fellows lot in the early mornings. This is a milkman. Some use the more familiar milk can, but personally, I like the brass pots.|
|The colors here are one of the things I most want to remember. This is so not a monochromatic city-color everywhere.|
|More public monuments. I have to hand it to the people here. Every major thoroughfare has some type of public art.|
