Fwd: Friends of Afghanistan Afghan travelogue

Well, I guess it's a travelogue if you walk from Herat to Kabul - in a straight line through the mountains - in the winter- in 2002 (soon after Tora Bora). Yikes.

The author went on to be a deputy governor in British-occupied Iraq. An amazing journey and an amazing book.

Time to revisit a travelogue from the 50's (or was it
60's?) called "A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush" by Eric
Newby. The golden years of Afghanistan, the
Afghanistan we knew.
