As a desert and dry mountains lover, I generally want to go to interior Sindh and Balochistan to get peace. On this Sunday we three companions chose to ride towards Samandari Baba Tomb by means of Memon Goth. The minute we crossed Model Colony, sights were begin changing and appears like we went into any village. On both sides of streets there were trees and on the back there were ranches of local people living there. Numerous farmhouses are perfectly worked along the street for the individuals who need to avoid city life.
After thirty minutes of drive, we achieved a standout amongst the most serene and cool spot, there was an old tube well on side of the street which is utilized for the watering system of farms. The well was so much profound that we attempted a considerable measure to see the last point however we proved unable. Crisp vegetables were put on the highest point of tube well and on the back agriculturists were occupied in reaping their yields.

|Local farmers were surprised to see us.|
We spent 30 minutes sitting over there getting a charge out of the chilly breeze. There was an old tree in which local people has attempted to frame a joyride, which I was difficult to appreciate because of my weight. It was one of the best places to sit and make tracks in an opposite direction from city life.
|Homemade joyride was placed on the plank of tree.|
Subsequent to spending some memorable moments, we proceeded with our voyage further towards the most established wells of Karachi known as Damloti wells, that zone is close to Model Colony and Malir Cantt, Damloti is a town acclaimed for its wellspring of subsoil water that is supplied to Karachi. Two same Damloti wells were on both sides of the street, we stopped out bike and begin to investigate those strange wells. A board has been put before first well telling about his operation and history. The well was quite deep and built with red blocks. From its appearance it looks like from numerous years nobody is taking care and offering consideration regarding its significance.

After exploring the main well, we moved further to the opposite side of the street to investigate the second one, the street was blocked not by vehicles but rather by the cattle, both the wells are same fit as a fiddle and from inside. Dead honey bee homes were found on the windows of well, there was nobody to whom we can get some information about its usefulness and history. A wooden pathway was made to achieve the base of the well where the working valve was set, it was spoiled and not able to move. We were alarmed to go close to the valve however by one means or another we figure out how to go and take pictures from inside.
|Even goats were surprised to see us.|
