So I've got my flights to and from Pakistan booked.
I have got a visa for 90 days, but I'll probably stay a few weeks longer if I can get an extension - that's what I booked my flights for anyway.
Accommodation, food, servants, pay and a couple of shopping trips to Dubai are arranged, as well.
I'll try to see the rest of the country at some point and possibly get a semi-regular driver to see the rest of Karachi, too, but I think that will be easier to do once I'm there.
I'm still trying to get my German scholarship/loan for the summer and next year and an extra scholarship to get back my flight and visa money, but I technically don't need either to get this done (and if circumstances change, as I expect they will, I might not be eligible for student loans next year anyway).
So yay for going to a third world country to make fun of how I still get better hours and benefits than all you guys in the US! Well, hopefully, anyway.
