Only people who enjoy suffering are Habs fans.

My team lost by 5+ goals so I was just about the only one out of 21,000 people in the building who was suffering. :'(

This mountain is called Nanga Parbat aka The Killer Mountain because of the large number of mountaineering deaths. It was considered an unclimbable mountain during winters. However in 2016, it was climbed for the first time in February.

I woke up at 5 am in freezing cold just to capture this moment because the camping site owner told me that when first sun rays hit the top of the mountain its looks like the top is made up of gold and man, he was right. That was pretty awesome to witness.

Abbas went to give an entrance exam to my brother's old school. Overlooking it is St. Paul's Cathedral:

On a path by the building I found this:

It's the poet John Donne and it brought back fond memories of school.

As 15 year olds, we'd been studying his poem, 'A valediction forbidding mourning', which has the following famous lines. The metaphor is that of a compass and its two feet.

Someone in the class thought the reference was to a compass which you use for finding direction, we ribbed him mercilessly after that. That was the sort of high-class bullying we used to have.

If they be two, they are two so 
   As stiff twin compasses are two; 
Thy soul, the fixed foot, makes no show 
   To move, but doth, if the other do. 
 
And though it in the center sit, 
   Yet when the other far doth roam, 
It leans and hearkens after it, 
   And grows erect, as that comes home. 
 
Such wilt thou be to me, who must, 
   Like th' other foot, obliquely run; 
Thy firmness makes my circle just, 
   And makes me end where I begun.

You captured a spectacular view Mash'Allah.  Your country is beautiful, what a moment to witness.

Is it expensive to travel in your country?

In Lebanon, if we want to go skiing it would easily cost $100 per person, considering all expenses.  So obviously we don't take this as a hobby, since I have a family.

I think Pakistan is quite cheap if a person knows how to travel properly. I recently made a solo bike trip to some of the northern areas and it costed me less than 200$ for 7 days. I will post more details about my trip in a separate thread/post.

This is what the exposure was supposed to be:

My camera is permanently set to a fully manual setting. By mistake I had the ISO left at 5000 and got this in an eariier attempt:

Just noticed that this is an effect that may be worth going after deliberately. Overexposure has washed out the floor and walls, but the redness of the cup is still there.
