    A Very Friendly and Homely Guest House in Islamabad

    The Hotel Hunza Embassy is located in a very affluent and pleasant leafy area of Islamabad, home of some of the leading Pakistani politicians (President Zadari was living there at the time we stayed). Security is impressive, if a bit concerning, with sand bagged road blocks and heavily armed security guards. The Hunza Embassy Hotel also has a security boom gate with armed guards. More like a guesthouse, this very homely hotel has very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are basic but adequate, the dining area is simple but very pleasant and the food is good. Our only real problem, and it was not the fault of the hotel, was the never ending power outages which are a sad and unfortunate fact of life throughout Pakistan. We had to travel in the height of summer as the road on our forward journey through the Himalayas of Ladakh is closed for most part of the year. Staff tried their utmost to keep their generators going through the outages but it was almost impossible for the air-conditioning to cool the rooms once it stopped.

    Cross border trade from China has also been significantly affected as crossing the lake is quite slow and inefficient. The government has given a timeline of another 3 years to fix the problem but most people expect it to be done in 5 years.

    ... equally as a province of Pakistan because of the never-ending dispute with India, and a whole range of other issues. One thing that we talked about that really fascinated me was Ismailism, the major religion here.
    Ismailism is a subset of Shia Islam, but it is so different that it is probably unfair to call it so. Their leader is the Aga Khan, who is said to be a direct descendant of the prophet Muhammad. He has the right to change aspects of the religion as he ...
