    Yay... found the Pakistan trip pictures (67 pictures)

    Mainly shot in the Swabi Province of the NWFP. Landscapes, architecture, etc. Didn't take too many pictures of guns, but it's not exactly like they have a lot of stuff we don't have over here, and like the USA, waving guns around in public is a good way to draw unneeded attention to yourself.

    Unfortunately the action shots, mans inhumanity to man, insurgent beheadings, rapes, US atrocities, carpet bombing, and flagrant finger waving were in another SD card that regrettably fell out of the helicopter with special agent Jack Bauer when the israeli micronuke went off.

    But these ones are good too.

    Tower of London, rifle racks



    Indus / Kabul rivers




    District Swabi farmlands





    Nearby school






    Punjab/NWFP bridges, historic ackbar's-fort (also current military installation & political-prison)




    Around attock (I think)




    Blaster


    Torbela (sp?) Dam, supposedly they store the hindu crowd pleaser's up there.


    Near Peshawar, Sikh fort in Peshawar, & the Khyber Pass











    Might want to ask Pepsi if they'll sponsor your local paramilitary militia too. And remember, Pepsi really stands for Pray-Every-Penny-Save-Israel, or so I've heard.












    Trip to Swat District, taliban types took over a good portion of swat last year, including these hill/mountains. Took several weeks before the national/world news media decided this was something of a larger news story than the pakistan presidential debacles.







    Buddhist stupa in Swat










    Hindu Kush mountains from Swat




    This mauser was used by Bedouin tribesmen to kill Rick O'Connell (well, one of the mausers they used.)


    Jahangira train station, near the Indus, built by the British






    Back... and certified by homeland security & FBI as: "passing for, or reasonably similar to a white guy"

    Great photos, and thanks for sharing. I'm reasonably sure that was a very interesting trip. I love the "Welcome to Pakistan" sign.

    Awesome! Pictures are great but the actual experience of travel is often life-changing.

    excellent photos, thanks for posting them.

    I have questions about the experience.

    How does what you expected to see or experience there differ from what you actually saw or experienced?

    What was the best and worst of the trip?

    Thanks for the good comments. I'll have to sort through them again and pick out some more. These are the el-cheapo photo store "CD" backup copies. The digital high resolution versions were zapped in a HD failure, but I have quality printouts that are scanable.

    Didn't have too many positive or negative expectations for the trip, I had known a number of people that had been to (or grew up in) pakistan/afghanistan. I sorta knew what to expect, but it turned out to be pretty enjoyable overall. People were much more hospitable and friendly than mexico, which I'll never go back to if I can help it.

    The historical and geographic nature of the NWFP was the best part. That buddhist stupa dates back to preislamic times, and probably several hundred years before that.

    Nothing much bad happened on the trip.

    Hate to say it, but being better than Mexico isn't exactly a groundbreaking accomplishment. :lol:

    I'd go visit more countries in a heartbeat, I'd love to see more of Europe (the broads are nice, they'll chat you up, and that's always a pleasure), but I don't know anyone that lives over there. I hate being just another tourist, it's no fun, and you might as well not go, you're not experiencing the actual country. Going someplace alone without knowing anyone is a litte more dangerous, and people who vacation like that will usually mention there's an elevated risk.

    The danger level is all relative, and odds are 99% of 30 year old eagle scouts could have successfully hiked across any of the war torn former Yugoslavian countries at the height of their problems. Heck, my family knew a hindu guy who knew another hindu that hiked from India to Iran. Nobody robbed/beat/ate him, but he had to hide and sleep behind some rocks a few nights.

    Like most places in America, there just isn't a lot of actual crime to speak of in the NWFP. It's a big deal when one pashtun tries to kill another with an AK in cold blood. That's really an oddball/rare event.

    Hell, maybe Mexico is a great place if you have some friends there.
