Fresh, factual, and funky view of Afghanistan and the surrounding Central Asian region

At The End of the Rainbow

Tuesday, June 12, 2007

This week we started our advanced class with an excursion up TV Mountain, located in the centre of Kabul. After thrashing the taxi drivers cab to the peak, we stepped out onto a vista second only to Everest…..well…...




Our first volunteer for this year is Gitta from the Netherlands. She is here doing a project working with the female photojournalist, but is also helping us around Aina Photo. She came along to on excursion to give the students a Dutch perspective on photojournalism.


Some started to fret as the weather changed to a light rain, so we started to head down the hill. Then from nowhere a huge rainbow appeared over Kabul City. One of the students yelled out, “Teacher, how do we expose for a rainbow?” Gitta replied “over expose and make a wish!”


I asked one of the student’s Nasim, “Did you know that there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?” He said, “Ahhhh, in Afghan tradition it is said that if you pass under the end of the rainbow you will change into the opposite sex!”



That’s so “Afghan”………
