Hello Ivana,

A sweet story, thanks for that. I was in Afghanistan as a traveller in 1974. Good lord what a country & what a people! I have the fondest memories of hospitality & just plain decent folks. And how the Afghan people looked! … French folks, so many French folks travelled in those days. that too I recall. The tragedy of their history is beyond words & such a pointless, petty, vindictive move as this ‘ban’ & its affect on ordinary folks such as these beautiful girls is deeply tragic. I got the photo from a news story somewhere, yes it’s wonderful isn’t it. Good wishes. Martin.
