Power to the people!

Hi everybody,

Long time no see! Well, already more than two weeks in Pakistan and slowly everything is going its way. Good progress in business, (although i hardly believe to be back in Europe before end of June), weather is getting again a little bit cooler, (just 40 degrees), and the girls are even more busy than myself. We are now officially members of the UN Club. Well, there you can meet more or less just foreigners, you are able to go for swimming, (a great pool), fitness center is attached and a nice restaurant which reminds me a little bit on home in a commercial way. But you can go at least for a beer legally! Last weekend we met the Austrian community. Well, nearly everbody from Austria is working for OMV in this country, of course! But we met some new nice people also from other parts of the world. We either visited a "safari park". Hm, the funny thing is that this safari park consits of expensive real estates and not how we believed of animals. Yes there are animals, artificial cows, ... ! Another day we went to Taxila museum, a region next to Islamabad where Alexander the Great, the Greek Mythology, Hindus, Buddhists and Moslems where meeting...and this everything between 2 century b.c. - 3 century a.d.! Really exciting, for history freaks ;-). So this is my short descritpion about last week...ah, something i forgot. Yesterday i had my first experience with a real Pakistanian doctor. Since it was so hot the last days, all my stomach muscle got inflamed by ACs, quite uncomfortable. To be secure i went to a doctor suggested by the Austrian embassy. It was interesting...i told him what i think to have and he agreed! And at the end i had to pay 15,-€, incl. medicine. At least private docs in Paki are a real occasion.
Okay so far, more news coming up soon...nice greetingz to everybody! JKA.

Paki is calling...!

Asalam Aleykum!

Nice greetings from Islamabad...the city which sleeps at ten in the eve!!!
Well, we are now for one week in Pakistan and it´s getting hotter and hotter. Today it had 39 degrees, tomorrow they forecasted 44!!!!! Incredible. I am happy to be blown away by air conditions. Even our accomodation has in each room at least one AC plus a huge ventilator which starts to work when the AC blows too much, kind of new energy ressource ;-). Thanks God that ACs are installled everywhere. I think if you wanna make business in Pakistan you should open a power plant, $ !
Katja and Ameli are already getting used to the different culture and i think soon we will need some bodyguards for Ameli, because everybody wants to grep her, touch and take photos of her!
However, first weekend we visited Rawalpindi and Murree...Pindi is really something completely different to Islamabad. The peak of our visit was the lunch taken in a hotel, for all kind of local travellers, where Osama and his gang were probably just one of the tribal guests form the North West Frontier Province. Really exciting! Last Sunday we have been in Murree, the Lignano for Pakistanians, which is on 2.300m...and i think it had nearly 30 degrees in the sun! Well everything else looks quite nice. Tomorrow we are meeting the Austrian community...finally again a nice cooling beer!
Our next plans are going to see Lahore, Karachi, eventually New Delhi, and another possibility would be Katmandu, although i am already happy with Pakistan so...well, let´s see. Okay, hopefully everybody is fine in good old Europe. Please update me from time to time what´s going on since we are here til mid of June.
Here is a link to the photos of last week...enjoy: Photos

Best wishes,
