The Pakistani city of Mirpur is known as “Little England” due to its large British Pakistani community. So what is life like for the city’s many expats?
Mirpur’s connection with Britain has made it a place quite unlike anywhere else in Pakistan. You can see it in the huge villas.
“Where could I get a place like this in the UK?” says Zahoor from Ilford, as we crane our necks to get a full view of his dazzling palatial creation, complete with terraces and towers.
But even that is nothing compared to his most recent foray into development Mirpuri-style. He has now finished building an entire “British street”. (complete article)
This time we want to know what is your favourite city in Pakistan, and preferably the thing you love the most about it!
Let us know :)
p.s. Feel free to reblog and amplify this post.

Abarimon is the name of a legendary race with backwards feet. In spite of their backwards feet, they were able to run at great speed. They lived side by side with wild animals in a great valley of Mount Imaus (now called the Himalayan Mountains in Pakistan). There was a special quality of air which meant if it was breathed for a long period of time it would be impossible to breathe any other type of air and the inhabitants could never leave the valley alive. (via sinlesss)
This is also most probably the legend which gave birth to the “pichal paree” (Punjabi/Hindko. One with backward feet), an often evil or mischievous creature yet with attractive features.
