thanks for this. I know nothing of this country that we've been at war in half my life, except that it's dusty? this is really great.

Thanks for this post. Some really great pictures, and I really like the #EverydayLifeInAfghanistan feed and wouldn't have found it otherwise. I can't stop looking at this portrait, it's stunning.
