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,
    Gert
