A very pleasant hotel located in central Lahore. Service was good and generally the staff friendly and helpful. A small few however were very annoying in hanging about in our room obviously expecting a tip. Perhaps we couldn't blame them. Life is tough in cut throat Lahore. Our room was comfortable and well appointed. The restaurant on the floor of the hotel was attractive and the food was good. And we had no power outages! Security is understandably very tight.

Kudzai had a friend from Pakistan here tonight that was very aware of national issues. If you hear of riots or protests in Islamabad - it will be about the Prime Minister past election. There is some concern that there will be a change ...
We are starting to get ready for our next adventure - a trip North to the mountain areas of Pakistan! We are planning to go to Hunza valley with the LUMS Adventure Society (LAS) in a few days. Apparently, it's a brutally long trip up there - 3 days by road on busses - but worth it once you're there. We won't have much internet access ...
