It's 4 in the morning, hot and humid and sticky yet I can't think of a place I'd rather be. Days are slipping by fast, and I am never quite sure what day and what time it is.
I think it's one part jet lag, one part late night dinners with friends and two parts trying to get a lot of work done that keeps us in a time zone of our own.
Just stepped out of the shower and finally decided to whip up a quick little post for my good friend Lucky, who I know is on pins and needles to see some Pakistani food photos.
Geoff and I are just winding down from a long day in our room overlooking Clifton beach and sometimes I swear I can hear the waves of the Arabian sea at night but as Geoff has just pointed out it's probably just the moaning of the air conditioning unit.
And all these food photos are for Lucky, who I know is dying to see them. I am not quite sure what everything is called, anyone knows what these are please feel free to chime in. All I know is kulfi and kheer. And marsala of course. And naan. Feel free to correct my spelling by the way.
One last one I couldn't resists, the door man:
I am trying to keep the images on the tame side here, I am sure you're well aware that there's sort of an R-rated aspect to this part of the world but at this point I am not quite sure how much of that I should or shouldn't show here. It's practically everywhere you look.
Thanks for visiting.
Until next time.
*EDIT: In answer to Chrissy's comment, by R-rated I wasn't referring to the violence (explosions/blasts) you see on CNN and BBC. Believe it or not, those are just a few a bad apples, the vast majority of the people here are overwhelmingly nice and friendly. They will bend over backwards to help you any way they can, really. I was actually referring to the poverty/child labor that unfortunately is a rampant sight to see around here and I will never be immune to it.
** EDIT #2: I just took a few photos on my way home last night. I haven't mastered the night settings on this camera yet but I kinda like how they turned out. Enjoy.
No parking :-)
I bid you all a good night :-)
