Arriving in Karachi

So I arrive surprisingly on time at Jinnah International last night. After having read about the torrential rains in Karachi all of last week, I’m dreading the drive home. Surprisingly it was fairly dry. The blast of humidity and dank in the air hits you in the face as soon as you leave the pleasant air-conditioned airport.

The onslaught of coolies and taxi drivers had to be avoided as always as I found my way to mywaiting transportation.

Was a pleasure waking up to Fajr Azaan. Haven’t had that happen in a while now. Not too sure about the chickens and roosters in the neighborhood that started going nuts after.

First thing this morning, I go for a shave to my local hairdresser. Why pay Rs. 800 for blades and shave myself when I get a better shave with better satisfaction and a massage for Rs. 50?

Good to be home again.

    Caution: Goto your reliable ‘Nayee’, because I have heard cases of ‘refurbished’ razor blades :|

    You came from Canada last night and start posting here in morning. That’s I call spirit but some people may ask you to get a life. Dont listen to them, they are jealous of your passion.

    Cool but I am never interested in getting shave from outside; they make you a CHIKNA and I don’t like that feeling on my face…

    ^^^^@ Zain : Yaar I know what you mean by Chikna….they mowe your face with ULTA USTRA and your face feels like baby butt afterwards….also I’ve noticed that after couple of neighborhood haircuts no one can’t suspect that you’ve once lived abroad.

    ps: @ Halai…now thats I call dedication..keep us posted with your friendly observations.
