these are your photos? love the man one of the making tea. to us in the west, making a cuppa is just bang, switch on the electric jug, throw the instantly boiled water in the cup with teabag and hey presto. over there it a whole multidimentional experience blended with patience. i love the chai wallahs in india.

they are really something, aren't they? i spent about 2 years in the himalayas, in nepal and india. that crisp clean air, pristine environment, the slow pace of life and the gentle, friendly people. yes, i can understand that desire. is it in pakistan or afghanistan, you would go?

I didn't know her gender...what amazes me is, how can a hard culture like of Pashtuns interest Westen women (women generally being soft/refined compared to men...:smile1:

love the last photo. look at the slow, quiet lifestyle the people live. i truly admire the people of afghanistan and other lands, where they have survived for so long, under such hard environmental conditions. plus in afghanistan the people have also survived all of the invasions from outsiders.
