Pakistani Pride ~ it’s a REAL Thing. Roasted Corn vendor
And down a narrow alley, I came upon a camel for Eid…I’ve found Pakistanis to be warm-hearted and these “strangers,” more often than not, have a camera-ready smile anytime, anywhere.“Chana Man.” Selling chana from troughs in the Old Quarter. Delicious, traditional Pakistani breakfast cuisine. A misconception probably held by many ~ to never walk down narrow alleys in a Pakistani neighborhood, without knowing what awaits you at the end of the path…BUT, I did just that. Several times. This is what I found. Warm, smiling, gentle people not even questioning why I was there. Just welcoming. You’ve GOT to come to Pakistan ! Life happens and we keep moving along… Warm roti. YES.The man above smiled and gestured to me as he passed by, to please take a picture. I happily obliged. What a sanguine moment. Delhi Gate, one of six remaining historic gates in the Walled City of Lahore. It faces eastward in the direction of Delhi, India. Back in the Mughal era, this was the main gateway to Lahore. The gates were closed and locked every evening.
