Only this little bit has been uploaded:

I was gonna ask you to post a pic of that concert, I read about it in Dawn. But the pics here are almost the same as the one accompanying the article. How did these guys have the balls to come here anyway.

It was strictly invitation-only. The tickets were not up for sale. Even then though, these Germans (not the band, but the attendees) were walking on roads and stuff without fear with their families. And I was thinking wow man, they got balls. Also, they had no security.

I saw a white lady walking along Khaiban-e-Rahat a couple of months ago at the crack of dawn and wondered how dangerous that was for her to be alone at a deserted time like that. I guess goras here now must be here because they are being paid a lot of money, otherwise I don't see how we can have any left.

Well, like I've said before you can see a lot of goras around, there're at least a few at Ebco no matter when you go. I think I posted one time when I saw this blonde in a nice mini in khadda market. About a year ago I think.

This is a general question, but it specially goes out to Siamu.

What I don't understand is, how come there are a lot more foreigners visible in Karachi, than in other, safer cities, of Pakistan, such as Islamabad or Lahore? You've talked a lot of the times, about seeing White people, South East Asians, not to mention, Bengalis, Afghans etc etc

Plus, I've also read about Nepalese, Sri Lankans and Indians making their way for Karachi.

I also have this:

Owing to the scale and diversity of the immigrant population, estimates of its size and composition remain rough. In Karachi, the largest segment – about 1.3 million – hails from Bangladesh, while totals from Africa, Burma and India reach into the hundreds of thousands. Most Bangladeshi migrants travel overland to Pakistan via India, where they are sometimes able to make arrangements in advance for work in Karachi, where supposedly pays are higher than anywhere else in South Asia. Karachi is also home to 80,000 Afghans, who are counted as refugees rather than as aliens on the assumption that they will return to their native country once conditions improve.

Where as, in Islamabad and Lahore, you'd mostly just see Afghans. You would only see other foreigners, if some other country came on a diplomatic visit. Atleast thats how it is for Islamabad. Is it because Karachi is the Financial Capital of Pakistan? Yes or No?
