Tourist, my warmest, most sincere thank you for this story. It has risen to levels beyond ride reports, it's more in the magnitude of deeply touching photo journal, for lack of better words. My hat's off to you.

The adventure you had was a remarkable one, but it's your skill at capturing the experience with your writing and photos that makes it so memorable.

Wherever your next adventure takes you - across the world or near to home - I, for one, will want to hear about it. And if your travels ever bring you to my corner of North America, you can count on a roof over your head, good food and plenty of beer!

Incredible. Loved the report and the pictures.
It is very interesting to get another view on Afghanistan then the news we usually get on TV and in the newspapers.

Thank you TOURIST for sharing. Imagine, if you are under arrested or captured or in deep trouble; how could you get help from NZ? or better not to think about it.
