The photo was taken from Tajikistan looking across the River Panj – the border between Tajik and Afghan Badakshan.The kids came to pick up their cows when they spotted us taking photos and wanted to get in on the action. As we posed for their improvised rock cameras they waved frantically and shouted us over for some tea!
This picture was taken 22 May 2005 in Sheberghan after a working meeting with the Governor. The kids on the picture were at the moment working and selling tea. They were happy to have us around so they could both could go to school and run their business.
