A young female Chinese diplomat's 33 months in Karachi

As if in the blink of an eye, February 23, 2019 came up, the exact day that marked the 33 months I had been working in Karachi. Almost three months ago, the terrorists attacked the Consulate General in Karachi. That day, November 23, 2018 remains a nightmare for me. At 9:13 am, I was on the phone with a colleague of mine from the consular department. Suddenly, some noise interrupted from the other end of the line, and the next second I heard my friend speaking in a rushed tone, "Xiao Meng, I got to go, sounds like a gunfight breaking out!"
