The view at street level  

Posted by Denis Haack in , ,

We hear of events on the news from far away places, but it takes more than that to give us a sense of what life really is like there. Stories help, as do pictures—pictures like this one posted on the BBC online (which you can see here).

The caption was simple: “A Pakistani man pushes a cart on his way to the main street in Rawalpindi, Pakistan.” Rawalpindi is in the northern part of the country, just outside the capitol, Islamabad. The photo is attributed to Muhammed Muheisen/AP, and I am grateful to him for sharing what he saw in this slice of life with the rest of us.
