Friday and Saturday are the weekend days here.
Friday we went on a long walk exploring our neighbourhood and Gulshan which is the area adjacent to us. Things were very quiet and not all the shops were open because Friday is the day of prayers.
Saturday we went to the monthly brunch at the Canadian Club. The club is adjacent to the Canadian High Commission and contains a tennis court, pool and gym as well as a small restaurant. The restaurant is open to all Canadians (provided they are registered) and their guests, while the sports facilities are for staff of the embassy only. We met a few other embassy staff and their families, including several other families who have just arrived.
Sunday it is back to work. I will be starting work, with some meetings on Monday and Tuesday, so today is quiet for me.
