The words I heard from Akram confirmed that yesterday wasn’t a dream. “You have another TV interview at 5pm, and then you will be joining me for another night of music put on by the Italian High Commission”. It turned out the new interview wasn’t for TV, but for the Express Tribune, a “major daily English-language newspaper based in Pakistan” and Pakistan’s only internationally affiliated newspaper (partnered with the International New York Times). I’m not sure when the article will be published, but it seems that sometime in the next week or so my story might be in print. The night of music was held in a small auditorium, the stage of which had been decorated with Cristina Senter’s gowns, a large Italian flag, a huge piano, and three microphones. It became a night of opera as male and female singers took the stage alongside a pianist and violinist. I have never seen any kind of opera before. I’m not sure I’d like to sit through an entire opera show, but I did enjoy watching tonight’s performances.

In print a week later!
