I’ve been to Afghanistan twice. Once in 2005, once in 2007. First time with Global Exchange. The second time with NGO Afghans4Tomorrow. Bring a camera. Bring a polaroid and give away photos. Get a local guide. Learn a few phrases in Dari. Take a taxi. Visit Chicken Street. Eat at a local kabab stand. Afghan hospitality is second to none. Don’t isolate yourself from the local population by staying behind the walls of an NGO or embassy.over 4 years ago

The 1960’s. I was still a preschooler up to second grade. The caravans used to come down from the mountains and we would pay a little bit of money to ride the camels up and down the street.
Well, I haven’t gone just yet but my mum was there about two months ago now visiting her friend and travelling around a little bit and just wow, I kind of knew it before but this trip just totally confirmed that my mother is one of the most awesome people I know. Her photos and experiences of this torn but beautiful country are just wonderful, and I can’t wait until it’s my turn.over 5 years ago
