My name is Mehmood and I come from Pakistan. I spent a large part of my working life abroad, as I wanted to provide better support for my family. I don’t regret it – I saw different parts of the world and sometimes I was earning good money. Now, at over 50 years old, I’ve come back home.
Before I left Pakistan when I was much younger, I used to work as a driver for various international companies in Lahore. Contacts of mine offered me a job as the operations manager at a motel in London. I accepted it and moved to England, where I stayed for ten years. Lots of other Pakistani relatives and friends were living in the same area, so I didn’t feel too lonely.
