Christmas Cheer in Hyderabad

A crew of us headed out Monday for midnight mass that, due to a very well subscribed communion- drug on long past Santa’s last stop on this side of the world.

Tuesday evening we all got together for Christmas dinner and drinks, though no substitute for family, we all had a very nice time. I even got to meet Santa!

In some tragic news, Thursday evening the ex-prime minister of Pakistan, Benazir Bhutto was assassinated by suicide bombers after a rally in Rawalpindi. Bhutto, who has been very critical of the current state of emergency declared by Musharraf, was to stand for parliament in next months general election. Whatever your feelings about her politics- this is surely bad news for Pakistani democracy.
