Write a piece about a typically “local” experience from where you come from as though it’s an entry in a travel guide.
If you visit Peshawar, don’t forget to sip green tea (at the end of a meal, or if you feel like taking tea). You will never get the same taste any place else in the world. Although I am by birth a Pathan, but I have never been able to emulate that taste in my home brewing session of green tea.
“How bad! How sad!” My favorite expression of lamenting anything gone wrong.
Then another thing! Get yourself a pair of Peshawari Chappals (footwear). They are simply unique. Order them to be made exactly for your foot size. You can wear them throughout summer. They don’t cost the earth. You will be surprised at the price you can get them. Do try three-four shops to find out the real price before you decide. Don’t forget bargaining.
Don’t forget to buy Chitrali Topi as a headgear for yourself.
Hope you enjoyed the local fare.
Sadly the “War on Terror” has brought only terror to Muslim countries, and death, and destruction to Muslim people. A nightmare which is fueled by hatred, religion, and greed. The ones who are killed are Muslims, and the ones who are suffering are Muslims, and Alas! there is no end in sight.
