Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I am continuing with my journey in Pakistan.

After Karachi, we flew to Lahore and from there, took a journey to a small, rural village.

I remember seeing water buffalo in the fields, wallowing in huge, waterlogged areas.

The people in this small village were definitely not used to seeing westerners. The village elders proudly asked us to sign their special book as evidence that we had been there.

They were aware that we were going to visit and had saved up for bottles of coca cola, as they knew we would be unable to drink their water. The one I was given was opened by a kind man, who hammered an old screwdriver through the top and thrust a straw through. I knew it wasn't healthy but ... what could I do, they had made such a special effort for us! Consequently, I began to feel ill before we had even returned to the hotel!!

I will concentrate on the children who are so unreserved and natural. This youngster had been left behind by the majority of the children racing to see us but ... what a sweetie! I know it's not ultra sharp and there were some white, vertical lines on the photograph, no idea why, but this little girl was so delightful, I had to post her!

I will add a couple more photographs in the w/s which I hope you will find interesting.

Please remember, these were pre-digital and have been rephotographed from existing photographs.

Thank you for your continued interest, I hope I am not boring you, Bev :-)
