Pakistan

After finishing highschool i had the unique chance to spend some time in Pakistan.
I was there for 1,5 months and i stayed with a nice family in a small city in the north of Pakistan. The time i spend there was in the winter, so alhamdulillah it wasnt so hot when i was there.
Pakistan (just as India) has a very bad image here in the arab countrys. In generell most arabs think indians/pakistanis are dirty and are all worshipping cows. Still a lot of woman here love to watch the Bollywood movies.
Sadly they dont know much about the healthy indian food, the colourfull culture and that a lot of people there are even muslims.

Pakistan had been indeed a part of India until the muslims of India decided to seperate from the rest of the country to build their own State called Pakistan.
Since than they had 2 fight for their right of independence and until today Pakistan and India have a huge Disput with each other.
India is most famous for their colourfull Movies produced by the Bollywood Industry.
Though this country has to offer much more than that.
One of the greatest offers India has, is the Food which is healthy and rich of Spices.
Since pkaistan has been a part of India the cuisine is almost the same, except for the fact that inPakistan the Pig meat is replaced by Cow meat since Muslims dont eat Pig meat.
Also the landscapes in both countrys are breath-taking.
No one would expect Hills covered with Snow in this counrtys which are mostly known to be hot and full of jungles.
Even this countrys are still 3rd World countrys, they have a lot to offer and they import many goods all around the world.
Once of the most imported goods from India and Pakistan are Spices such as Cardamom, Cinnamon, Safran and many more.
Also the famous curry has been found in India, though not by Indians but by British. They tryd to get the taste they got to know inIndia and so they invented this mixture of Spices called Curry.
If you ask for Curry in India they will propably offer you a complete Meal. Curry stands in India for a Meal, wether vegetables or Meat, cooked with Safran and in most cases with coconut milk.
Another thing that became very popular in the last years and that is original Indian, is Yoga.
Yoga has been, since centurys, a way to meditate and to train your muscles.
India and Pakistan ahve a lot to offer and a lot to see.
A travek there is certainly no waste and it will open your eyes to a world you wouldnt expect :)

I wish i could go again to Pakistan 2 meet all the nice and lovly people again, but i dont think that gonna happen.
Still it was a great experience that i dont wanna miss and iam glad 2 share some pics of this with u, i hope u enjoy it :)
