Women in the dark
While busy taking photos on the street of Rawalpindi, I stumble upon a heavenly back street in dark shade in between two women walking towards my direction. This kind of scene was rare, without much consideration, my hand raise and aim correctly, snap!

Wanna buy a gun?
Plenty of shops selling guns in the old city Rawalpindi, I think tourists can grab one or two from here but not for me. This photo shows a gun shop owner inviting me to look around at what he has, so I snap a photo. Pindi is the name in short where I heard many locals used to called themselves. Pindi is much aging than Islamabad in almost all aspect but maybe not in gun shops.

Shops selling guns, pistols, rifles, etc
Our hotel is located in this area where many shops selling guns such as this photo. I took this photo while searching for breakfast.....

    So, the government thinks Benazir bumped her head and died here? Bullet to the neck seems more probable given what you write here.
