Kabul Korrespondence

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

Mum's a Teahcer, so I guess Im one too...

Sunday, May 11, 2008

I came here in December 2006 and taught photojournalism. I'm still doing this.
In 2007 I started teaching skateboarding with Sharna and Ollie. We are still doing this. Now in 2008 I have started teaching guitar. My Afghan friends have been begging me to teach them for months. I said to them when you have your own guitars I will teach you.

Last night we had our first lesson. The boys are obsessed with song 'Nothing Else Matters' by Metallica. I learnt this song when I was 15 and probably havn't played it in 15 years!

So this is the first song I am teaching them and they are doing well. Maybe one day we can invite Metallica over to Kabul to hear a private concert of their music Afghan style. They used to be hard core metal band. I don't know if they are still hard enough to make a trip to Afghanistan....
