Where in Karachi # 106

On my way home from work yesternight (around midnight), I was treated to the rain in all its glory. AMAZING views EVERYWHERE. Even the flooded roads didn’t seem so bad at the time — seriously! It took me two hours to get home, as opposed to the usual 30 minutes max (because traffic is usually pretty thin by the time I get done with work-stuff), but it was ABSOLUTELY WORTH it, I tell you!!!

Here’s one picture that I took. The picture quality isn’t what it should be of course, but this is the best I could do with my camera (and my photography skills — more like the lack thereof, actually).

So yeah, can you guess where this is? : ) It shouldn’t be too hard, really, seeing as how all the landmarks, etc, are there.

After the picture above, I decided to be a tad “adventurous” and stuck my head out of the window to get a “clearer” view. Bad decision — for a second I thought my precious little sasta-camera was a goner, but it survived (thankfully!), so oh well! :-D

Needless to say, I absolutely LUUUUUUUUUURV thunderstorms!!! : )

    For crying out loud, dudette! The pics u’ve uploaded are a 2304 x 1728 resolution. How about trimming them down to 500×375 or something?

    if this is an exercise in “read my mind”, then i failed miserably. LOL. Is it Sh-Faisal though? :)

    And I do NOT love thunderstorms. Almost peed in my pants at the sound of thunder yesterday … good thing it was raining; hahaha :-D

    Naah, this is nowhere NEAR Nazimabad… OR Shahrah-e-Faisal, for that matter!

    Hint: Near Clifton.

    @ Imran: LOL yeah it’s a good thing it was raining then, no? :P Yaaaaar! The thunder last night was all WOOHOOO!!! I was at home at the time, reading and listening to music, and all of a sudden I heard this *BOOOOOM*!!! I put my book away, switched off the speakers, and listened. Amazing stuff!

    Oh, and another hint: The green, blue and red lights in the pictures are not from cars.

    The first picture was from inside the van. The second wasn’t — my camera almost drowned to death! :P

  23. d0ct0r (unregistered) on August 13th, 2007 @ 12:31 am

    i think higher resolution pics in the last post “Behr-e-M.A.Jinnah Road” are much better.. those who have slow dialup connection should simply not click on the image if it takes time to load….
