Danyal's Pakistan diary - day 1

Danyal and his mum in Pakistan
I arrived at the airport with my mother and father. We met Tony the cameraman and Ian the director for the first time. We had to check our baggage in at 10am, although our flight was not until 1.45pm.

I went to Pakistan when I was a baby so I don't remember anything so this will be my first time to properly meet my family.

Soon after we got on the plane to Lahore I fell asleep and my mum had to wake me up to tell me that we had landed.

We finally arrived in the early hours of the morning. It took ages to get out the airport because we had to fill out the forms.

Massive family

We were greeted by our family, and my great grandmother had travelled 1,000 miles from Karachi just to meet me!

There were also aunts, uncles and cousins that I had never met before - I didn't realise I belonged to such a big family.
