Traditional, energetic and colourful — who doesn’t love a Pakistani wedding? Employees of the US consulate were thrown a ‘dholki’ by their Pakistani colleagues.
In a colourful post on Facebook, US Consulate Karachi shared fun-filled images of the dholki. The images showed the staff and friends enjoying local traditions of a Pakistani ‘mehndi’ complete with bangles, singing and dancing at a site decorated in traditional Pakistani style canopies, carpets and flowers specifically marigolds.
Earlier, the US Consulate celebrated Thanksgiving dinner with the family of a Pakistani camel cart driver who was invited in 1961 by then US vice president Lyndon Johnson to America.
