I had planned to watch tonight’s FIFA World Cup final match at the hilly Pearl Continental resort in Bhurban, about an hour’s drive from Islamabad. Too bad a thunderstorm is brewing and it’s unlikely to be over within the next five to six hours.
Too bad for the match, but at least we’ll get a relief from the horribly stifling weather we’ve been having recently. Night temperatures have been in the high 30s (around the 98 degrees Fahrenheit mark), while humidity is high enough to keep your hands all clammy.
Guess I’ll need to find another venue. Oh, and I’m cheering for Spain tonight.
