    This was very close to the main upload, just by the river flowing through the city. As far as I can tell the grey walls are the embankments of the river. The boy standing on the right was probably just about to haul a bucket of water from the river.

    From a different part of Kabul. I think this was somewhere in the oldest part of the city, on the other side of the river. This is one of my relatively few photos of an Afghan woman. I always felt slightly nervous pointing my camera towards women.

    From my long train journey from Karachi to Quetta. I took this picture through the window while we had stopped at a station somewhere in Baluchistan. My train probably looked exactly the same. I was going 3rd class too.

    Jean Sibelius is regarded as the national composer of Finland and one of the greatest composers of any of the Nordic countries.

    The main monument and this bust were created by Finnish artist Eila Hiltunen and were installed here in 1967. According to Wikipedia this bust was made as a concession to those who considered the main monument too abstract,

    Taken exactly two months after the first photo, this may be one of those two little "walking Egyptians". If not, then definitely one of their siblings, as we only had one family of these geese in the park this spring.
