You guys (indians and Pakistani's) are hell good with cricket. I like to see the passion and love your nations have for the game. I think its shitty Pakistan and India don't get along with each other very well (its still a political thing, though). Where is pakistan and India on the chricket ranking these days?

To "women travelling on their own in pakistan"
Here are the basic tips you need to know when you are in Pakistan

1- Respect other cultures, so you will be respected.
2- Avoid traveling to tribal areas alone.
3- Clothings that cover your whole body. This doesnot mean you need a GIANT burqa. What is means avoid sleeveless shirts ,short trousers etc.
4- Find a guide who will take you to the best places, and saves your time.
5- Avoid being nice to everyone. No one is alike, not even in New York.
6- Try going upto the mountain areas where you feel comfortable and even safer. Try Hunza,Gilgit,Skardu FairyMeadows.
7- Always have a mosqueto repellent with you.
8- Anti-Typhoid pills.

These are the basics, if you need to know more,
let me know

I always find this comment, when made to women annoying. It is usually the advise we get, when visiting countries, where womens rights are the least developed. Who is disrespecting who, I ask?
But, I always wear the expected clothes, and behave in the expected way, to protect my safety, rather than out of respect.

I am travel helper and I donot want to get into an arguement with anyone. If my tips bother someone, well I can't do much. Different places ,different cultures and different mindsets. Mel didnot like my tip so nothing can be done about it.
