Lights and magic.
I just got back from a 4 day vacation, and while its great to be away from work, I missed Karachi like anything. Which I didn’t realize until the plane started circling the Karachi airspace, all bright and lit up [oh my city of lights, i missed you], and the passenger next to me commented with a look of awe in his eyes: ‘your city’s gorgeous’. He also couldn’t get over the fact that it took 10 minutes for the plane to circle Karachi and reach the airport, a testament to how large the city is. I suppose you start appreciating your city anew when you see it from a visitor’s eyes :)
