A drive through Kabul
Location: Kabul, AfghanistanI recently qualified to be a convoy driver here in Kabul. It's quite an experience driving in a country with no traffic laws or rules. These are some pics I took while riding as a passenger.
They use trafic circles ... but it's everyone one for themselves!! -- and you MUST ALWAYS be watching for potential suicide bombers. They are out there and they'll get ya if you let 'em.
Folks set up shop anywhere they want.
The UN is everywhere here.
The Kabul river with some water in it. Most of the year it is dry.
An all too common site here - a woman begging for money.
A local Mosque
Again, the Mosque
These is a typical street scene...
...more... note the "Sports Agency".
-- old and new are frequently mixed in Kabul
The building on the left has been under construction for so long that no one remembers when construction started.
