January 2011 Travel Photo: Pashtun Children on a Qalat Wall
This is one of the first photos I took in Afghanistan. It is of Pashtun Afghan children looking down on me from the walls of their qalat (mud, walled-compound) which the majority of rural Pashtuns live in. I got the feeling I was being watched not only by these children but by Afghanistan in general.
I am very busy most of the time; however, blogging has provided me with a nice mental outlet. If you have any suggestions for a blog post you want do dealing with Afghanistan please comment.
