Daewoo, Faisalabad

Much has been done in Lahore over the last few days, and I've constantly been faced with the choice of either collecting material for pieces/posts or writing them. With the limited time I've had, I've chosen to just soak up the experiences, and leave the writing for later. In fact, to be precise, for Faisalabad.

Pictures as well, many of which I spent hours yesterday selecting and resizing. I shall begin posting all that soon, but for now, as an interim measure, here are some pictures from yesterday.
