Mandawi is not only the largest whole sale market in Kabul, but also in Afghanistan. I assume 70 percent of the consumer goods traders have an agency or their entire business here. The market is normally a whole sale bazaar, but people from around Kabul come to this place to buy their stuff (consumer goods). In this market you can buy anything you need (home appliances to smallest thing, clothes, hardware and food items). Close to the area there is the bird market where you can find almost any kind of pets as well.

Snake Shows

Audiences, not only buyers, but also enjoy the snake show and jugglery

One of the good things is Kabul is the existence of jugglers and street sellers. When I say jugglers and street sellers, this means, Afghans who sell stuff (medicines for different purposes, especially for sexual stamina and men's health), but besides selling they have their unique way of marketing. They have snakes shows and playing with cards to stick people and they leave the show half to sell stuff, then start the rest of the show.

One of the main reasons of civil wars and instabilities is Afghanistan's rugged geography. The country is full rugged and mountainous. During the history people from different regions were all in their own corners and lack of communications is one the common issues in the country. For example people from Nuristan valleys do not know what is happening in the south and vice versa.

Kabul Municipality Employees!

Photos by: Mohammed Ibrahim Wahid, May 25, 2012,

They do good work cleaning Kabul, but there is a problem, because of a bad canalization system in the city, they have to take everything out of the canals on the roadside and leave it for a few days to get dried and then transport to Neverland!.

Traditional Carriage System!

This type of carriage system is very common in many eastern countries. Afghanistan is one of them. People still prefer to rent them carry their goods from very short distances to longest 15 km. They are reliable and cheap, but the problem is the people carrying these rolling pieces of wood, they are mostly between 25 to 60 years old.
