Probably should have shared this earlier. This is the Khaplu Palace in Skardu Valley of Northern Pakistan. Once a palace belonging to one of the Royal Baltit familes it fell into disrepair before it was restored by the Agha Khan Heritage Foundation. As with the nearby Shigar Palace it is now part museum and part heritage hotel. I stayed at both last summer for a travel article I was writing. It was published earlier this year, the link is in the comments below. Open Edit Travel Heritage Building Heritage Architecture Hotel EyeEm Gallery VSCO ASIA Pakistan Summer Traveling

"Promising never to forget is not the same as remembering" - This week I wrote two pieces to mark the first anniversary of the APS school massacre in Peshawar, Pakistan, which claimed the lives of 144 people including 132 children. Even for a country so marked by tragedy this was a level of devestation indelibly shocked Pakistan. One year on and some things have changed, but no way near enough. I wish I was able to do more, but I am just a writer so I just wrote. The link to first piece can be found in the comment below. Never forget.

I had the chance to watch a few local polo contests in the North East valleys over the summer months. It was an arresting spectacle. Unfortunately my lens collection is rather limited and I didn't have the right kind of glass to truly capture the magnificence the experience. Still beauty seems to always to find a way through and I was able to take one or two decent images. I am going to put them up on the gallery intermittently.
