Just a few days left

I woke up this morning and realized that our vacation is almost over. We've been here for about 10 days, and they've just flown by. We haven't gone many places in the past couple of days, but I can't say everyone isn't having a lot of fun. We're just about all shopped out, two days ago I vowed to buy no more clothes for either myself or Safa, and so far I'm sticking to it. It takes a brave person to resist, when you see so many beautiful traditional Pakistani outfits, the shalwar kameez, in every store window you walk by.

Last night Safa, Nadia and I went to get our hair cut. All three of us have come back looking quite different, but we're happy with our new looks. This is Safa with her hair clipped back before the new 'do':


........and after

We were invited out to dinner yesterday evening. Bilal was very well behaved, right up to his bedtime, then his mood deteriorated and I brought him home a little early. Zakir stayed behind, and Bilal kept calling for him, up until the moment he fell asleep. Since we've been in Pakistan he can't stand being parted from Baba (Tata) for even a moment. Quite a daddy's boy!
