First impressions from Afghanistan
Two days ago HP and I arrived in Kabul early in the morning. Since then we have made such a lot of experiences, have got to know so many nice people, that I can hardly believe that all this happened in only two days.
We could get first impressions of Kabul on our way from the airport to our guesthouse. Of course we are not used to such tight security measures. You constantly have to pass police checks. Many armed men in uniforms of different nationalities are present in the city. In spite of that normal everyday life is going on and this is fascinating. Here are some pictures of Kabul and our trip to the Massoud Memorial outside Kabul.
