Geckos & Guns: The Pakistan Years

  • Geckos & Guns: The Pakistan Years focuses on the Bazant family's time in Pakistan--a time of adjusting to new and different surroundings, of embracing cultural differences, and of recognizing imminent danger. In the five years they spent in Islamabad the Bazants learned to love the temperate climate and the stark beauty of the countryside, the spicy curries and the exotic weddings, but they also learned to negotiate constant power cuts, flash floods, trips to opium country, bombings, a family emergency and more.
