Not very much has changed in the last 36 years in the landscape. Unfortunately fanaticism has destroyed a beautiful and wild country. Greetings.

Zu dieser Zeit war das noch möglich, so zu reisen. Hätte mich auch sehr gereizt. Man müßte 300 Jahre alt werden, um einigermaßen alles sehen zu können, was einen lockt. Schade, dass Du nicht mehr Bilder hast.

Viele Grüße aus Wien, Erika

To hapka: nach Afghanistan wird man geführt, die Seele will dorthin. Und einmal da gewesen, lässt einen dieses Zauberland nie mehr los. Da weisst man, dass dort das Zentrum, die Seele, der Geist der Erde her stammt. Da hat die Seele eine Heimat, das weisst sie, und sie sehnt sich danach. Dort wird die Sinnlichkeit auf dreier Arten aufgenommen: Seelig, geistig und körperlich. Afghanistan geht sehr tief und berührt dort etwas, wofür es keine Wörter gibt. l.g.

Hi Abraxas, Do you have more pictures of Aghanistan? I like to see, me too was on the road in 1972, tanks for sharing, Greetings from Italy, Elios

Elios I have only 3 or 4 more pictures with absolutly no quality. I was travelling by hitchhiking and my "camera" was indeed no "camera", so I put it away in Kabul. At this time I didn't like to take pictures... Maybe we met somewhere in the chicken street or in an other place ...:) I stayed there for three times..on the way to India and I love this country!

Hi Abraxas, Chiken street....so many memories... Now I'm 61 years old but always on the road, maybe we meet in some place, the world is round!!! Greetings from Italy, Elios
