Feted and delayed in Wunderful Pakistan

OUR exit from Pakistan involved cutting through the southwestern province of Balochistan, the troubled desert  ‘hot spot’ which shares a long border with Afghanistan.

We were advised against making public our movements while in the province for security reasons and duly adhered. We took a 20-hour train ride from the town of Bahawalpur to Quetta, moving through dramatic desert landscape amid tight security. Good thing we were not allowed to cycle to Quetta, I had thought then, as the land is barren and we would have risked exposing ourselves to danger.
