Photographer's Note

Good morning Everyone,

These will be my last photographs from my trip to Pakistan.

They are a mixture of different aspects of my visit and I hope you will find some interest in them.

We flew from Lahore to Islamabad which is such an amazing city. It is planned out in a grid pattern, like the streets of New York, so different from other cities in Pakistan, and quite unlike Rawalpindi the earlier city with which it shares boundaries.

My main post shows the famous Faisal Mosque in Islamabad.
It is the fifth-largest mosque in the world and the largest within South Asia, located on the foothills of Margalla Hills.

The mosque features a contemporary design consisting of eight sides of concrete shell and is inspired by the design of a typical Bedouin tent.

Construction of the mosque began in 1976 after a $28 million grant from Saudi King Faisal, whose name the mosque bears.- Wikipedia

We sat on the outskirts of this mosque, where the people were extremely friendly, chatting with us about our visit. Some were eager to swap telephone numbers but ... always suspicious, after seeing the corruption that existed within the country but still wishing to be friendly, gave the school number. Nothing ever came of it!

I will add a couple of photographs as workshops that I hope you find interesting.
Thank you for your constant encouragement for me to post these memories. Have a lovely weekend, Bev :-)
