We had a good time today exploring the Old Town Karachi with some excellent documenters from the field of Film and Journalism

A resident of this building looks on with a mix of mystery and annoyance on his face, as he looks at a group of around 35 - 40 people walking in his neighborhood early Sunday morning exploring parts of saddar, Karachi.
I was a participant in an activity organized by @pakistanchowkcc called the Heritage Walk in Karachi. It was an hour long early morning walk which educates people about the older structures, history and architecture of buildings which are otherwise being neglected by the government and citizens of Karachi.
The walk educates you about the building materials being used in buildings as old as 1931 which still exist in Karachi, the culture of that time due which the buildings were made that way, the concept of markets and commercial hubs like the printing press market, the pharmacy market and boltal gali where you find a lot of perfume shops etc.
It was a pleasant experience walking around old areas of Karachi and actually paying attention to these buildings, which we usually drive by without noticing, everyday. Most recommend activity for a weekend in Karachi.
