Islamabad – 2nd Gift to the World

To celebrate the spirit of the holidays and reinforce the pleasure of gift giving to promote good will over the next few weeks, all the Metroblogging cities are giving 7 gifts to the world throughout the week of NOV 26th – DEC 2.

This is Islamabad’s 2nd Gift to the World.

Islamabad, unlike many other cities, has a variety of weather changes. Within the 12 months, the city faces as many weather conditions than any other city can ever expect. In summers, the temperature reaches even higher than 40 degree Celsius. Splashing monsoon rains try to cool things out. While, in winters, the temperature goes below freezing point and warm clothes cover things up. In between we have sweet spring and awesome autumn, too.

Rain, snow, wind, hot, cold, wet, dry … you name it, and the roads of this city have faced it. In short, Islamabad is the heaven of weathers. Come to see it for yourself :)

Since November 26, Metroblogging sites around the globe have been unveiling seven gifts their cities can share with the world – one gift a day for seven days. David Markland over at the Los Angeles metblog site has put up an ongoing guide for all the posts on this subject.

    Well this summer the heat index in Islamabad Reached 52 deg centigrade … and man it was hot like anything …. But luckily the span of serious summers is not very large since in july monsoonal rains take over and then humidity factor comes too … But yes Islamabad is all-season city and in all seasons it looks appealing :>

    Awesome gift Ustad Rustam … and I loved the linking you’ve done to all seasons !!!

    Yeah, great post dude … and a great idea.

    Just adding to your stuff.

    A quarter of Finland’s territory lies above the Arctic Circle, and as a consequence the midnight sun can be experienced — for more and more days, the further up north one comes. At Finland’s northernmost point, the sun does not set for 73 days during summer, and does not rise at all for 51 days in winter.

    Midnight sun means that the sun is visible 24 hours a day!!!

    Must be hard livign like that.

    And I read a report once that analysed the increasing depression rate in Seattle due to rain.

    Anyway, definitely is a blessing to have the taste of all weathers. Good post, great choice!
