    My brother and I spent 9 days in Bangkok and riding scooters in southern Thailand. I set the Google maps navigation to walking directions, instead of car directions, so we ended up in some interesting places. Turns out scooters have crappy suspension.

    If your generator catches fire, don't dump all of your drinking water on it.

    My first thoughts were Japan, remnants of the tsunami, when I saw the picture.

    Just a guess honestly....

    I'm guessing the Pakistani military academy is just down the road.

    If I was on my PC I would download that picture and see if the exif is intact.

    Google satellite view suggests that it isn't what I was thinking.

    The incredible thing is that there are multiple military facilities ALL OVER THE PLACE. Not just one. They're everywhere. A one mile radius is crawling with Paki military.

    Shit is getting weirder by the minute here. On the way back to Islamabad, the highway was blocked by lorries. All roads into Islamabad blocked. We drove around for 6 hours in slummy towns trying to make it back to my hotel. My driver was afraid due to the clashes in town (ex-president corruption court stuff). I had to pay him a bunch more money because I was not gonna get stuck in some little shithole Paki village 60kms from my hotel with no taxis.

    So today I'm flying to Lahore and I'm stuck in my connecting city, Quetta. Flight to Lahore is cancelled. Quetta is on the Afghanistan border and is crawling with Taliban. Frequent bombings here. There was one a few weeks ago. Gonna hole up in my hotel room (its shit. the only nice hotel in town is bombed frequently) and try to get out of here in 2 days on another flight.

    I'm 60 years old. Not sure how much longer I can handle this sort of adventure haha.

    No more stomach problems, but the night sweats are outta control.

    You’re 60 and have led a full life, so you’ve got that going for you.

    Otherwise, I got nothing except that Allahu Akbar is “the phrase that pays” over there if you get in any trouble.
