In Pakistan, you'd better take extra care. Take care, both of you!

I actually find your complains interesting and a good lesson. While majority of RTW reports are overwhelming positive partly because of the riders' optimism to life and situations in general, I find your complains both intriguing and informative. Blog on mate. Show us the bad sides people do not talk about. U give valuable lessons thru your lessons. While not entirely appealing, they are interesting :)

Do keep your blog going with your encounters along the way.
