Going away

Going to Pakistan and Kashmir on Thursday. We have just had a house built in Kashmir and are going there to furnish it. The house was started in the spring of 2005. Building was halted in October of that year because of the devastating earthquake. People were too busy repairing and rebuilding their own houses. Here is a picture of our house taken in May 2006. It has been a very slow job as the pace of life is much slower there and they don't have all the modern equipment that we have here. The stones for the house were cut by hand.
The house is now complete so once we have seen it and measured up and decided what we need we will go shopping in Islamabad in Pakistan from where we will have the furniture transported. I will keep up to date here with what we are doing and more pictures. (If I can get internet access)
