View Full Version : Northern Afghanistan: BBC report

Listened to this report by the BBC's Kabul-based correspondent AM today and wondered what was going on. Then realised the weblink refers to a day trip into Northern Afghanistan, making it more interesting IMHO: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/from_our_own_correspondent/7991937.stm

These words sort of reinforce another thread on Afghan culture:

'Here face-time and respect matter, deeply. They are the foundations upon which friendships are built and success achieved....we were only home thanks to the good grace, generosity and ingenuity of our new Afghan friends...'
