The Faces of Kabul, Afghanistan

by Scott Clarkson July. 21, 2009 1791 views

I spent July 21 in city markets and an unofficial refugee camp located approximately 20 km west of Kabul. UNICEF doctors were on hand, as well as 400+ displaced families. I didn't feel like posting the camp photos today; and I'm instead putting up an essay on the faces of hope and dignity in Kabul.

Great set! I am currently reading this excellent book, and the fantastic work this American has carried out in this part of the world.

I'll just throw in my two cents on why they are soooo happy. There's no fighting and little mayhem in the city right now; they have jobs; there is a steady food supply; The police haven't harassed them today (maybe); it's not that hot for the season; and them seeing an American visitor with a camera instead of a gun makes them think that more of us will come. The people I've met in Kabul are friendly, gracious and engaging.
