"Sahiwal" Sahiwal by l_joo
Sahiwal Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 11 photos
Sahiwal is a not a big city, a town in between Lahore and Multan, about the size of Harappa but much populated (according to a guy we met). 41 Celsius is the temperature of May. Our target destination was to visit Harappa but we were told no buses go directly from Lahore, only to Sahiwal, therefore we come here just to catch another bus (second photo) to get to Harappa's Archeological Site. A quick stop at this town for lunch in a restaurant full of local peoples standing each by each to stare at us. They stood still with smiles on face, friendly though, as if we were special VIP or some kind of Malaysian representatives. As usual, those Sahiwalese asked us many questions which already been asked over and over since the first minute of Pakistan........
Are you Muslim?
While waiting for bus to Harappa, two men came swiftly by motorcyle. They walked towards our direction and then they asked " Are you Japanese?"
We "No, we are Malaysian"
They asked "Malaysian?"
We "Yes, Malaysian"
They asked "Are you Muslim?"
We "No, we are not Muslim"
They asked "What's your religion?"
We "We have traditional Chinese religion (easier to explain)"
They asked "Why you visit Pakistan?"
We "We want to see many things and many places"
They asked "What is the purpose, why you visit?"
We "Just travel, we are normal tourists"
They asked "What's your occupation?"
We "We are computer designers (easier to explain)"
They asked "Do you know Mahathir Mohamad?"
We "Yes, he's our retired Prime Minister"
They asked "Are you married?"
We "No, not yet"
...and more, lots more.
Here's the restaurant I mentioned where so many peoples standing and staring at us. They are friendly peoples, so generously serving their customers. The foods were so delicious where I ate a full plate of rice of mutton and chapatti. Everbody was nice except one, one guy came with unfriendly face deliberately sitting in front of us with his leg up on the chair. I smile to him politely but he seemed somewhat not appreciate at all. Anyway, we smiles all the way to Harappa because we met so many friendly peoples.
This is our bus or coach that we take to get there and away, Skyways is the bus name but I couldn't remember how much it... more travel advice
A fruit stall and another selling some soups I guess. The background has some unfinished constructions, just that simple... more travel advice
