Takht-i-Bahi Michael Novins

Takht-i-Bahi by Michael Novins

I left Islamabad early on a December 2017 morning on the Grand Trunk Road to Taxila, an hour to the northwest, to visit the WHS's ruined second-century Buddhist monastery. From Taxila, it was a two-hour drive to Takht-i-Bahi, another Buddhist monastery, which was abandoned in the seventh century. From Takht-i-Bahi, it was less than an hour to Peshawar, where I arrived just in time for Friday prayers at the 17th-century Mahabat Khan Mosque. The mosque is located down one of the many narrow passageways in Qissa Khawani Bazaar, where the friendly vendors were surprised to see an overseas customer. In fact, I didn't seen any other foreign visitors in the heavily fortified and militarized city, maybe because it's less than 40 miles from the border with Afghanistan.

Rohtas Fort Michael Novins

Rohtas Fort by Michael Novins

In December 2017, I set out on the Grand Trunk Road from Lahore to Islamabad, where, after around four hours, we reached the much-improved turn off to the sixteenth-century Rohtas Fort. From what I was told, the fort receives very few western tourists; in fact, I was the only overseas tourist during my visit, so I was assigned a personal security detail. I’m not sure a guard was necessary, though, since all of the locals who approached me were only after a group photo with the foreign intruder.

Makli, Thatta Michael Novins

Makli, Thatta by Michael Novins

In December 2017, I made a day trip from Karachi to Makli necropolis, about 60 miles to its east, which might be the world’s largest funerary site -- the ten square kilometer burial ground contains approximately one million tombs, mostly built between 1570 and 1640. Almost as interesting as the abundant tombs, were two elderly snake charmers who set up shop along the dirt path leading from the entrance to the tombs. The snake charmers seek visitors to fund a musical performance on the pungi, the wind instrument whose rhythmic sound and movements appear to hypnotize a de-fanged Indian cobra. Their second act is to entice visitors to purchase a serpent to battle an Indian mongoose to the death, although the mammal’s acrobatic agility, coarse coat and resistance to snake venom ensure its victory.

Sya, centre historique de Bobo-Dioulasso (T) Michael Novins

Sya, centre historique de Bobo-Dioulasso (T) by Michael Novins

In November 2017, I spent a few days in Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso's second largest city, but much more appealing for a tourist than Ouagadougou, the enchantingly named capital. The most vibrant area is around the Grand Marché, the atmospheric market, where all the typical foodstuffs, colorful textiles and household goods are on offer; stranger fare was available on the outskirts in the fetish section. Bobo-Dioulasso’s highlight is the Grand Mosquée, made of mud with timber struts that peek through the plaster. I stayed at Villa Rose, where the Dutch owner was very helpful (in fact, she called me after I made my booking to see if she could answer any questions or provide any information on traveling in Burkina Faso) — plus the room, food, WiFi and outdoor space were great. On the drive from Bobo to Ouagadougou, I stopped at the sacred crocodile lakes at Sabou and Bazoule.

Zone Giraphe (T) Michael Novins

Zone Giraphe (T) by Michael Novins

Until the 1960s, before persistent drought and population growth, the West African giraffe ranged widely throughout West Africa. The last self-sustaining herd can be found an hour east of Niamey at the Kouré Giraffe Reserve, which I visited in November 2017. From a low of around 50 giraffes in the mid-1980s, the herd is estimated to number more than 400. I found 15, which were easy to approach on foot.
