Pakistan: Unbelievable hospitality. Some pretty good food. Colourful bazaars, cricket mad people. Majestic Mughal architecture and mosques. Exotic names like the Khyber Pass and Rawalpindi. The devastating Kashmir earthquake a few months before our arrival meant we didn’t get to see the Pakistani mountains or the Swat Valley. A multitude of ethnic groups – Pashto, Baluchi, Kashmiri, many, many more – spread from green valleys to sunburnt deserts to the sea, make up a country I wish I had spent longer in.
