It used to be within the morning whilst our ft ultimately touched Pakistani soil for the 1st time, the rustic we was hoping to name domestic forever.
Even within the darkness, the warmth used to be insufferable and the air felt unusually unusual. i'll have sworn that we have been on one other planet – a warmer, drier planet. Sajid led us from the aircraft to the airport terminal whereas Zahra and Amar, their pleasure palpable, walked as speedy as their little ft could permit. Readjusting from sleep, their younger eyes stored darting round, taking in as a lot in their new atmosphere as possible.
