We have now arrived in Karachi, Pakistan. After our long - 9 hour - flight from Luxor the other day, the 550 mile "hop" over to Karachi seemed very short.
Weather was good but extremely hazy over the sea and we looking into "white air" most of the trip. Landing in Pakistan was clear and easy under the guidance of excellent controllers at this major airport. We were met by Shaheen Air and Customs representatives at the airplane. Procedures were quick and easy. Time from touch down to hotel was 1 1/2 hours.
We now face some decisions about tomorrow's planned flight. There is a depression over the Bay of Bengal (India) which could bring severe weather to Patna - our next destination - in North East India over the next 2 days. We will watch weather tonight and decide on tomorrows planned flight later.
