Kabul Korrespondence

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

Back from the Wak

Tuesday, July 15, 2008

You may have or may not have not noticed that there has been no posts for the lasts few weeks. The reason being is that I have been away on assignment / holiday in the Wakhan Corrdor.

Myself and 3 other Journo's (friends) rode motorcycles for 12 days over 1500 kms to basically the end of the world.

It was a action packed trip through the Badakhshan province('Badaction' as the local call it). The tour was full of dramas, accidents, laughs and interesting interactions with the local Wakhi people.
Id like to show the extensive collection of images...BUT! you'll have to wait for the magazine article, exhibition and TV documentary.

More details to come.

Wow! Sounds amazing. Kinda like 'The Long Way Round' only more hardcore.

Congratulations to your students, by the way, on the jobs and awards. You must be very proud.

Looks a bit like the Che Geuvarra trip trough South America, but then slightly different...
What a harsh country.
Good portraits!
Cheers, Erik
