Absoutely fantastic. You sound like a wartime reporter on a week off in Afghanistan. Awesome reporting.
Very sad that a whole generation in Afghanistan can only remember the war, quite like in Vietnam the history thats showcased is the horrors of war everywhere & in the case of Cambodia, genocide by a mad dictator . Uugh, the killing fields...I frankly didn't feel too good visiting those Sites and museums in those countries . well its reality..who am I to judge...lets face it.
This has been played out in the battlefields of our planet for eons, fighting for ego, ideology, ethnic cleansing , greed & what not .....fellow beings have paid the price.
The silver lining is the ability of humankind to bounce back, which is evident in you beautiful photo narrative.
the once again
Fortunately, mankind

dcd,

The adventure is FUN but when I travel to places like Afghanistan I am happy to visit.. even happier when I safely leave.

Next, "daring" adventure... Syria 😁

JW,

Yes, Syria. In the final stages of planning trip. If I wait until all is right in the world there would be places I would never visit.

Surprisingly Syria is seeing an uptick in Western tourists and I am told things are getting better.. even if not by my/our standards.

Happy Holidays!!
