a place to showcase


….to the Kaghan Valley, up north πŸ™‚

Somewhere along the way, after Mansehra, a pit stop for chai, the river Kunhar gushing busily by.

  3. Wow, some nice shots, Mun! How are you? Sorry to have been so absent recently.

    And just in case you’re interested, I’m going to be taking a road trip of my own this summer. Here’s the deal. I’m going on two-month RV trip with my nearing-ninety Godmother and her cat Pepe le Mew. I leave for the US in a week. The RV is huge, 37-feet. My Godmother will be driving and towing an SUV the entire way. She was a Flamenco dancer during her entire professional life. I’m going to try to blog about our trip and write a book about the 64 beautiful years she and my Godfather, a Venezuelan movie star (I kid you not!), were married, until Raul died last fall one month shy of his 97th birthday.

    My photos will NOT be as good as yours, I fear. But would love you to follow along. Take care, my friend!

    Hugs from Ecuador,

    • How nice to hear from you after so long Kathy! I do wonder now and then what you must be up to, always something novel and interesting!
      Looking forward to your upcoming posts! πŸ™‚

  4. How am I just now seeing this??
    Anyway, hope you had some chai for me. If I weren’t too lazy, I’d make my own. Seems easier for you to have it for me.
    I love the trucks, but I love the gentleman sitting next to them even more. His countenance is simply terrific.

    • Seems I have been lazy too H. A new comment on this post directed my gaze to your unanswered one, so here I am! I didn’t have any chai then, but Huz did have one for you. Can’t believe I never did any follow up posts despite having so many pictures to share from this trip 😦

      • Life is what happens between all our plans (and pictures). Yours has been busy lately. Sending you warm wishes.

  5. Beautiful! And with that minaret I can just imagine the call to prayer echoing through the valley before dawn.
    It’s giving me itchy traveler feet.

    • That’s such a nice observation πŸ™‚ And I thought you WERE on the move these days.

      • Now and then, but always working. I love the work, truly do, but crave the freedom of independent wandering.

  6. Logged in today after well over a year. The trigger was a Faiz song rendered by Abida Parveen, which went well with you a few years back. Wasn’t your tag line something like “have fingers, will type” ? Like most morons of the global village, I have got into the ubiquitous facebook, for expressing thoughts and feelings – less exertion for the grey cells.
    Best Wishes !

    • Always a pleasure to hear from you Mr Indiajones πŸ™‚ I logged in today after a few days too. It seems my life is full of strange coincidences these days…..just today I was perusing Faiz’s poetry and read a beautiful one called ‘Nuqoosh’ which I intend to write out on a canvas with a calligraphic pen.
      The ‘have fingers, will type’ tagline belongs to the other blog….Munira’s bubble….you do know I write three different blogs don’t you? This is the one where I post some of my better photos, Mun-zooms πŸ™‚
      Good luck with ye olde facebook πŸ™‚
