The streets are tree-lined and very clean…

Yes we have ditched our Pakistani clothing as they do not appear to be an obligatory outfit here…and they are a living nightmare to cycle in…Oh yes…and they also get ridiculously dirty….

Get it all into ya!!!!!!!!!!!

Mosques are beautifully tile decorated….
