  • Arrival in Pakistan

    Posted by Brian Jones

    18 February 2004 – My physical arrival in Pakistan was yesterday, 17th feb at 6 am, after two changes of plane and no sleep. Waking this morning I discovered that I had mentally arrived (it's always useful when the two coincide).

    I'm currently in Islamabad, which seems to be a bit sterile and devoid of life and not at all like the rest of Pakistan. The plan is to head out to Quetta in Baluchistan in the next couple of days, and do a nutrition survey followed by a livelihood's analysis. I'm not at all sure what to expect but have heard great things about Baluchistan and the hospitality of the people there.

    I'll keep you posted..........
