Afghanistan

A Beautiful Land of Endless Suffering

Afghanistan is a country of tall, forbidding mountains and dry deserts, but also fertile or irrgated valleys, where Afghans grow their crops and tend to their animals. This contrasts hugely with the expanding cities and the lives of the educated urban dwellers.
Afghans can appear fierce but their loyalty and love, once gained, is yours forever.
