Thursday Night, Clocking Off Work


Everything shuts down Thursday afternoon, and there's a great feeling around town between the time people start heading home and the 5 o'clock call to prayers. Windows rolled down, Akbar Baghlani cranked up loud, with Shuja, Baktash, and Greg the Kiwi, and these gum sellers caught us at an intersection.

I'm reliably advised there's an Afghan version of Marilyn Manson's Personal Jesus that's quite popular in town.

More pictures would be great. It would be nice to be able to visualize the place beyond conflict and images of Canadians in uniforms.

Careful there Terry; you're humanizing the place.
