We’re all kind of tired of how Pakistan is portrayed as country where there is nothing but problems. Sure, we have our own set of problems, but we are also probably the only country in the world that knows how to smile through all the good times and the bad. It’s time everyone sees our resilience and the fact we can be happy no matter where we are or what we do. Time to kill the depressing image, guys!

Here are 20 pictures of Pakistan that are sure to bring a smile to your face:
