I went to Abbottabad with my friend Nadeem. His brother is a doctor in the army and has a house over-looking the Abbotabad valley. Nadeem and I stayed there only one night as we were going to meet other friends in Islamabad the next day.

Abbotabad was founded by Sir James Abbott, a deputy commissioner of British India. It was an important British military post and now has several Pakistani military institutions as well home to several reputable medical colleges.
