Twin city of Islamabad

Great experience in Rawalpindi....
Arrived at the islamabad airport feeling tired and exhausted because of the long hours flight. Imagine i checked in on 30th august 2005 at 5 pm in KLIA for Karachi flight, arrived Karachi after 5 hours plus flight. waiting for the connecting flight to Islamabad at 5.30am and finally arrived Islamabad at almost 8 am on the 31st. August 2005...fuhhh 17 hours travelling time including the connecting flights...letih beb.

Greeted by some friends, then took a taxi, I decided to find a hotel in Rawalpindi, since they said its cheaper there compared to Isb. My eyes jus cannot stop looking outside the taxi, so many new things to me..hmmm..interesting they have ponies and horses too in their busiest roads ...young teenage allready helping dad ...working on small business or stalls...roads are narrow and full of activities, dirty lot in most areas ...highly populated and dusty city because of the weather. Look at this young man, running his own fruit juice stall, i must say...taste is FANTASTIC....but listen, try as much to drink bottled nestle mineral water...i didnt know this fact that i got dierrhea 3 times during this trip...lasted about total 16 days..suffered going in and out of toilets hahahaha..so pleaseeee..get a proper mineral water k.

Rawalpindi cinema

folks...if you feel so bored here...then there is always this cinema..problem is its poorly maintained, but hey the movie that i happen to watched was filmed in Malaysia hahahahah so kinda feel a bit funny when i saw some malay extras in this movie....miss home actually ....

The china market is an ideal place to visit...with so many different products available.Sorry folks...forgotten to take pics ....mayb some other time
