Crossing the Wagah border - After 60 years TATA trucks in Pakistan
Saturday, 03 November 2007
1 October 2007 was remarkable day for India and Pakistan. For the first time in 60 years Indian & Pakistani trucks where allowed to cross the border to deliver their cargo. Before cargo was carried by porters to the borderline and handed over to the porter crew on the other side. In a business sense quite labour intensive and time consuming.
For motorized travellers entering / leaving India this change comes has a side-effect. No longer you’re the lonely driver exposed to the rigid Indian custom procedures – you’re now among Pakistani / Indian drivers and their trucks. As we experienced on 6 October 2007 this lead to a remarkable border crossing into Pakistan.

Parasite skin infections in animals are quite common in Asia – they are very easily contracted and rapid treatment is the key to quick recovery.
