1973 ...mingling...

Unfortuneately there isn't alot of "mingling" like this anymore. Well, there is , but you know what I mean. The more minglers, the more dangerous. I'm afraid you probably wouldn't like the country as much anymore, although the people are probably even nicer now.

Great shot. A little moment and window to the past...

Default To happypoppeye: mingling

Hi John,
Thanks a lot for taking such a close look at my gallery. I was back in Afghanistan twice during the 2000's, the first time during Taliban rule, a few months before the bombings started. It was quite interesting but not entirely relaxing. The other time was during presidential elections in 2004. I did a lot of mingling in Kabul then and felt quite safe, despite occasional rockets hitting the city. People haven't changed much and are generally still welcoming and generous.
Best wishes,
