Pakistan Tourism: Still Trying

The young man at the airport approached me with a nervous smile and a hint of hesitation. He was from the Ministry of Tourism, he explained. Would I be so kind as to fill out a survey on my stay in Pakistan? The previous week had been eventful, to say the least. I had landed in Lahore on Thursday, Dec 27. As I left the airport for my hotel my cell phone pinged with an SMS from my wife: “Bhutto dead in Rawalpindi blast.” The following few days are a bit of a blur, and then on New Year’s Eve I fell sick with some intestinal bug that took two days to beat. “I’m not sure I’m the best person to help you,” I told the man. But he insisted, and so I was soon filling out the three-page form, which mixed statistics gathering (nationality, places I visited, number of nights I spent in hotels) with questions like “During your stay which features did you like most?” more

Just imagine 2007 was the year of Tourism in Pakistan :)

How a President should be elected !!!

This is how a 'President' should be 'elected' not like the way our president 'selected' himself. And when he feels that some legal problems can occur, so he sacked the whole judiciary including Supreme Court and High Courts of Pakistan.
