Lyari

Lyari is one of the older towns in Karachi. It's sort of west and north of the Lea Market Square. And I know this sort of from memory, and sort of from maps. And sometimes the memory and the map intersects and sometimes it doesn't.

One of the things to remember about memory is that no matter from which side you look at it, there are always gaps. Bits that have just gone. I guess too you have to ask what happens when the maps are changed.

Can you imagine poor Columbus' reaction were he to see a Google map of the New World? "Nuh, nuh, nuh...that's not the way it is at all!"
