Cheers!

NMFs (non-Muslim foreigners) could order alcohol in their rooms at the Marriott in Islamabad, which would arrive in paper bags or bin liners. There was also a cash bar tucked away in the basement of the hotel. The selection of drinks on offer couldn't be described as wide: red (Shiraz) or white wine (Chardonnay), whisky, gin or vodka. No cocktails, nor champagne. The final night of the weddding was the most formal: a reception for 250 people followed by dinner. Each table setting had a white and red wine glass but hopes were dashed by the waiters who asked, "Coca Cola or Sprite?"
