Iowa Boys


Visited the University of Agriculture Faisalabad because agriculture is a major industry in Pakistan (accounting for over 5th of GDP), and a MAJOR water user.

There, Dr. Allah Bakhsh (Dean of Faculty of Agricultural Engineering and Technology) showed us around his “Research Lab”, which was acres and acres of wheat, rice, sugarcane, tomatoes, cotton, perfectly planted and monitored for performance.

Turns out he got his PhD and Post Doc in Agricultural Engineering at Iowa State.



Temperatures above 47 deg C today (117 deg F for those still on the Medieval system).

Car battery gave out during our weekly supply run to Al Fatah shopping center.

Ducked into Burger King for the A/C while we waited for help.

First Fast Food burger in Years. I have to say…I don’t miss it.
