    Agricultural center - Mangos and dates!

    Central and northern Pakistan are definitely witnesses of all seasons. It can get cold in the winter, and hot in the summer.

    Its combination of heat, dryness, yet rather strong water table make it one of the most agriculturally diverse and strong areas of Pakistan. This area is known for dates and mangoes, many of which are exported (so look at the label next time you have either).
    Best Mango season is end of May, beginning of June.

    Wood for fuel?!

    by DSwede Written Jun 10, 2009

    Regions of Pakistan can get very cold during winter. And with construction of homes as they are, homes can be cold and drafty.

    Gas heating is not readily available, particularly outside of the cities. Therefore many people think that locals heat their homes with wood fires.

    The wood is more valuable to be used in the making of furniture and construction. The Pakistanis are quite gifted with their woodworking ability.

    So where does the heating fuel come from? Similar to parts of India, locals will collect dung from their livestock, pile them and dry the patties. This gives a very efficient and hot heating/cooking fuel. After a while, all I hope is that they become immune to the smell...

    Brick baking

    Similar to my pages of India, Pakistan has similar customs and traditions of making their building materials out of bricks.

    Once you get out of the city limits, keep your eyes open for signs of where the clay is excavated from the landscape. The horizon is also dotted with chimneys and warehouses where the clay bricks are baked to harden and cure them for building.
