Lahore, Pakistan

I can't describe how happy I was when I found this from my mailbox! Though I was expecting a card from Pakistan, since this was direct swap with my new friend, but still - so awesome! This was also my first card from Pakistan (or even from South Asia!).

Lahore is the 2nd biggest city in Pakistan, its population is about 10 million (twice as much as in the whole Finland...) and it has been ranked as the 2nd Best Tourist Destination in Pakistan. In this card you can see the Badshahi Mosque, which is the 2nd largest mosque in Pakistan and South Asia, and the 5th largest in the whole world. It was built in 1673.
If you Google 'Badshahi Mosque' you will see some great photos of it at night!

Thanks so much Imran! :)
