No India!!!  I was not able to get a visa in time.  The holdup?  A completed "certificate of renunciation" from the Embassy of Pakistan.  I was born in Pakistan, and even though I have been a US citizen for over a decade, India requires that I prove my lack of connection in official paperwork.  This renunciation certificate thing is pending with Islamabad.  Lord knows how long it's going to take.  At this point we cut our losses and we're rethinking the itinerary in Asia.  Maybe more time in Myanmar or maybe a side trip to Mongolia?


  1. Mongolia would be soooo cold until March or April.

    Looking forward to seeing more posts and photos :)

  2. There is a Pakistani consulate in Phnom Penh. You could try them?
