Fantastic!!! the published work is really the greatest I have seen on Pakistan. I will thirstily look forward to your future updates. Saying thanks will not just be sufficient, for the fantastic lucidity in your writing.
And I don't agree with you here. A travel writer of your class should not leave out anything because it is already know. Sure you will see any big city or anything famous from your own perspective.

Gosh! Thank you, Amelia. Let's see what i can do about big cities. As soon as the current load of non-travel writing assignments finish, i shall embark on this new quest.

Wish we have travelers' organizations where we explore places from a traveler's point of view. For example, we target 2 tours per year and before each tour we study the geography, history and present of the places we are going to visit. Regional cultural studies should also be part of it.

Thank you, Kausar. In the West they have specialist guides for the kind of tours you suggest. My hero, the climber-explorer Eric Shipton, became a 'celebrity guide' in his retirement. He was above 65 when he led special interest groups to Patagonia and other places.

That sounds like a challenge! But I will try to stand up to it.
