Welcome Mark. You seem to be a jolly fellow, the kind we love. The open minded, eager to befriend. You might not know but we have at least one of your compatriot (UK citizen)in Karachi. He is a celebrity here. Name George Fulton. I can narrate a lot but want to keep it a surprise. You can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org
or watch him daily Mon-Friday on Aaj TV or www.aaj.tv at 04.00 to 06.00 GMT.
He is a popular person. Speaks probably as much Urdu as you.
Favorite thing: Another amusing thing is the way the buses are decorated.U can see how the cinema plays an important role in people's lives.Also the indian cinema has also made a big impact to the lives of the common people.
Find it by yourself, the riotous mix of the old and mordern Pakistan. Where crude camel and donkey carts
move a long with shiny saloon car. Inherited ancient hand crafted synchronize with Heavy Mechanical Complex.
The handicrafts produced in the regions have a distinct local character. Their expert craftsmen infuse the MAGIC of traditions in exquisite creations of clay, pottery, carved furniture and traditional embroidery work.
Favorite thing: I am sure Pakistani friends will like to see those stamps about Turkey and Ataturk. I think they love Ataturk like us. He is a leader for them too.
