Experience Pakistan VI

And last but not least, we take up the issue that you probably wonder most about: just how dangerous is the the world's most dangerous country really? There is no right answer to this question, but maybe this can help you get a bit of a first hand impression about safety, paranoia and common sense when living in pakistan...

Experience Pakistan V

G.L.A.M.O.R.O.U.S. the flossy, flossy :) (imagine fergie's song to it)... It's hard to believe, but we had to become interns in Pakistan to understand the true meaning of glamor and luxury... Super dressy people, belly dancing performances, incredible buffet (at midnight)... Dive into a gala dinner at Islamabad's Marriott!

Experience Pakistan IV

Yet another peek into intern life in Pakistan... This time listen to live Sufi music sung by one and only Arieb!

Experience Pakistan III

More impressions of intern life at the Hot Spot (in every meaning of the word): Life is a piece of cake - spiritual healing by Alexander the Great.

This one goes out to Kurt: thank you for being a constant source of inspirational pie charts, trend setting T-Shirt messages, dead baby jokes and general lack of political correctness, facilitation/fueling of club house drama and business ideas that the world needs to hear urgently. You are the heart and soul of the intern community!

Experience Pakistan II

VERY random 'interview' with my driver Shazad, who gets me around in my daily life and on crazy weekends like this one: discovering Murree, close to Islamabad. The traffic chaos in the background was unplanned but very much in line with 'Experience Pakistan' :) It took all of us off guard - hence the wiggling around and improvisation, but we thought we'd just leave it like that!

Experience Pakistan I

Here a first little insight into normal intern life in Pakistan... Live from Islamabad!

There have been rumors that we are dead!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are far from dead people.....Let us tell you that Pakistan is the place to be!!!! We are alive and we are rocking more than we have ever been!!!!! It takes more than a few bombs and a bit of political unrest to move us on.

So the question you dare join us? Today for example, we have been for cheesecake, bought the latest in dvd entertainment, we've seen the next big thing in global rock n roll... and the best part is: we've got footage!!! enjoy some videos - live from islamabad, to be uploaded soon, as soon as we have overcome the technical issues (slow internet = experience pakistan!)...

with love,
