Got the visa and also the ticket confirmed for tomorrow night. Now if something bad doesn't happen, I'll be landing on the Helsinki airport on Monday morning.
No, I am not talking about any new action movie, but rather a person/department in Pakistan that is responsible to 'protect' Pakistani workers in any foreign country. I've been doing different sorts of jobs at very different places in Pakistan for the past 3/4 years but there haven't been any kind of support from the Government at all. I am very thankful to my relative (who is a traveling agent) who warned me that i might need the signature/stamp of the 'Protector' on my passport before i leave and he was quite correct about it. I spent the past two days trying to get that stamp and I did get it but please don't ask me about the details. Seems I was a bit luckier than this poor chap.
