Kabul Korrespondence

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

24 hrs in kabul

Friday, December 08, 2006

As I hoped, my blog has already morphed into a mainly visual based portal. Kabul being the dynamic melting pot that it is, has provided me with more than enough content in the little time i have been here so far. This is what i saw in the last 24 hrs:
7:32 PM last night: an hour after dark, Kabul turns into a ghost town, the streets are deserted and only the occasional speeding taxi verifies signs of life.

9:49 AM this morning: Aina Media Centre is situated in the centre of the 'NGO hood', fortresses of concrete and barbwire intimidate even the hardiest passersby

12:33 PM today. The mixed few from Asamai Mountain in central Kabul, In the foreground a man ponders life on his shanty roof, then the view of Kabul's metropolis fades off into a haze of brown smog.

4:12 PM today. A crowd gathers as a man tries to revive his companion who has O.D.ed on the infamous riverbeds of Kabul. He did not make it......

7:55 PM tonight. Aina Media Centre sleeps under a blanket of snow. Good night.

P.S. We completed over 30 interviews and have chosen 10 students to commmence the photojournalism course next week!
