Karakorum highway still on the China side
I didn’t know what me expected in this country, since I didn’t study read anything about this country. It was more a really quick decision to go to Pakistan over the Karakorum highway, which connects the west of China and the north of Pakistan. I can’t tell you incredible happy I am I took this beautiful path to beauty. To get the Visa in Pakistan at the border was no problem at all. I took with a Korean guy and Japanese guy a car down to a place called Karimabad in the Hunza valley. Unbelievable, incredible and wonderful landscape.
The people so far are even more nice as the landscape is beautiful. By the time I arrived in Sust, the Pakistani guy I met in the bus treated the Korean, the Japanese and the me, the German traveler for some decent pakistani food before he organized our trip to Karimabad for us. He gave me his number and email, so I can write him by the time I arrive in Islamabad and have dinner with him in his house.
After one day in Karimabad, I am very excited to be here longer. I just come back from 4 hours playing ckricket with the kids down in the village. The people are definitely a little more rough as the children in China. In China the kids want to practice their english. Here, they want to fight and see who is stronger. But nevertheless, they’re all very warm hearted.
I have meeting with these people in the village tomorrow again and they asked me if I will bring my camera. Of course I will. I just can’t miss the picture when the sun is shining through the trees and the dust from hitting cricket bats on the earth is everywhere in the air. It looks just awesome.
So, now I might stay here in the north of Pakistan much longer and enjoy the people and landscape for a week or so before i go down to Islamabad and India.
Thanks Pakistan, to welcome me so great and with open arms.
