Arrival in Islamabad

Arrived in Islamabad via Amsterdam and Abu Dhabi at 3 am. My driver and the head of security were waiting for me at the airport. An hour later I was fast asleep in the Fulbright guesthouse. First impressions: Islamabad reminds me of parts of Menlo Park California. It’s a planned city build around the same time as Brasilia in the early sixties. It doesn’t feel as if  I’m in South Asia except for the call to prayer at five in the morning.
