No, no plan to move to Pakistan although it makes perfect sense--to me at least.I didn't read the entire thread will do later but did you and your wife move to Pakistan on perma-basis if so that is awesome something i have always wanted to try out
The temp in Murree when we went there in early December was 27 F--yes, I am now used to American ways of F versus Celsius! Hahaha! Murree was pretty quiet and nice. I think that was because it was off-season. Here in America, we have seen as low as 5 F but Murree felt really cold. It was actually a great experience but I hear you: Summer time in Murree would be awful from what I have seen. We also went to a Catholic church on the Mall Road in Murree. There was a police vehicle outside its entrance. But they let us in even though it was late afternoon/evening. Obviously we looked 'non suspicious'. The priest was very happy to see a fellow Christian; he wouldn't let us take a pic of him. Later, someone explained, that the threat to the church was greatly exaggerated. I don't know. But we did contribute some $$ to the church--the priest pointed out about the donation part. Hahahaha!! But we were grateful to him anyway!A brotherly tip: DO NOT VISIT MURREE!
The people of Murree are horrible and have ZERO respect towards tourists!!!
Being a Karachiite myself and wife never been to Lahore before, we found Lahore to be far better than Karachi. Safer at least. After we went back to Karachi, someone there said that, no, Karachi is a mess right now because of the 'Green Line' Metro Bus Service work. That guy said come back in a few years--Karachi will be better than. Ahh, the age old Karachi vs Lahore!If you will come to Lahore, restrict yourself to Defence, Gulberg, Cavalry ground, Cantt, Model Town or Bahria Town. Rest of the Lahore is a crowded mess, no one goes there in right mind, specially for a vacation/fun. Unfortunately Minar e Pakistan, Shahi Qila, Badshahi mosque area is the old - congested Lahore. Only go there if you have immense interest and knowledge about architecture.
