“MOTORWAY CLOSED”

Mr. Akram, my driver tells me.

Last night, police moved in to disperse some protestors in the Pakistan capital which unfortunately erupted in violence. That violence spread quickly across the country, catching up with us as we prepared to head for the airport.

“Motorway Closed.” And with many local roads also closed, (actually, we had no reliable information about which roads were closed, or open) we retreated to the hotel.

Back at the hotel, I experienced my first “media backout.” Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, Line etc were not accessible. And some TV channels too.

An interesting experience. Not enjoyable.

But WordPress was not affected…so, here I am!

This has been in the news recently. Thought it appropriate for WTD2017.

Fog…

The trip to Pakistan this time was dominated by FOG.
Combination of pollution, field burning and cold humid air is the story…

Deep enough was to close highways. Taking good ol’ local roads.
