Salaam from Afghanistan!

A0178The 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!
