Balakot - Earthquake aftermath Bird's eye view

I was just toying around with my Flickr account, and realized that this is my most viewed picture. Interesting...

I guess a bird's eye view of an earthquake sight isn't something you get to photograph everyday....

Beaver... help! Google tells me there's no such place called Palakot. Is there perchance a reference to the place that Google calls Balakot? I thought you were in Benin, hence my confusion.

Not that confusion isn't educational, or your blog entertaining!

****************
Flattened by the massive earthquake that struck South Asia on Saturday, October 8, 2005, portions of the village of Balakot slide down a hillside and block the main road below. Located near the quake's epicenter in Pakistan's North-West Frontier Province, Balakot is said to be the town hardest hit by the temblor.

LMAO. Yes, I'm now in Benin , but the Traveling Beaver has had the privilege of spending two stays in Pakistan...

Thank you for the note. That's a dumb typo ! I've corrected it now.
