Good Cops (Driving in Pakistan pt 3)

So, I've got my very own police escort. Who da Man? What was to follow was my worst day and my greatest evening in Pakistan.

The police car finally arrives, basically your average pick up truck with a couple of uniformed police men on benches in the back with semi automatic guns. Nothing to worry about.

Good Cop (Driving in Pakistan pt 2)

It was night when I rode into Sukkur. No - this is not the start of a cheezy western, it's the continuing accounts of my motorcyle riding in Pakistan.

Just before the sun sets, all the bugs come out. What do I know of what they do, eat? Mate? Hang around and get hammered while they wait to get smashed by oncoming motorcyclists?

Driving in Pakistan pt I

Except for that little stretch of dust and gravel between the Pakistani border and Lahore, I was quite impressed by the standard of the roads in Pakistan. All the way southwards from Lahore were two-lane freeway in each direction. I asked some people I met in Lahore about what to expect and they only replied, "...well, everything is under construction". Turns out it is, so every few kilometers you have to switch lanes and team up with oncoming traffic. No problem, the surfaces are smooth and Pakistani truckdrivers are not as eager as their Indian counterparts to arrange your meeting with the great beyond.

An evening in Lahore

Lahore is a nice city. I'm not sure what I had expected, but I do admit that my impression of Pakistan and the Pakistanis was a little more on the hostile side. Known for burning flags as a national sport and providing the Taliban with moral and finacial support - I was very pleasently surprised to be proven utterly wrong.

Border crossing

The Pakistani border is about 30km from Amritsar and there was not a lot of traffic. There is still alot of bad blood between the two countries, and travel for their citizens is restricted. I could however, cruise along - the highway all to myself.

  • He insisted.... ;-)

    Check out the website of my brother, Ib Knutsen! He is currently working at a UN office in Nairobi, Kenya - and he is a bit more advanced as a webmaster than I am. You will find photos, videos, essays and articles and loads of tips and tricks.

    One of his latest projects was the making of a rap video for Nairobi rappers - definetly worth checking out!
