Topic: Akram of Lahore

I wonder how many of you remember Akram as your guide in Lahore? I went back to Lahore and tried to find him. He had died long ago, but I met his family.

His son, Amir Akram, has just become Saiyah's general manager in Lahore. He sent me the brochure a couple of days ago; lots of trekking and tours - the overland spirit lives on, even if the overland as we knew it has gone forever.

I hope someone out there can give him a hand. Attracting westerners to Pakistan may be a tad of a challenge, but I had a great 2.5 months there in 2013; I walked and caught tok toks everywhere. No worries.
