|Today we took a quick tour of Islamabad. It's about 42 degrees Celsius,
so we didn't stay outside for long. We're enjoying Pakistan immensely,
a country we knew nothing about prior to our arrival and a couple of visits
to the local library for some background information. Pakistan itself
has a very short history - formed in 1947 after the British broke off
two pieces from India (the eastern piece eventually became Bangladesh
in 1971). The capital city, Islamabad, was built in 1960 and is a young,
clean, and modern city (you might even call it a town).
