My Capital

Photos by: Mohammed Ibrahim Wahid, April 24, 2012.

Ten years and more than 70 billion dollars. This is one of the roads the government of Afghanistan constructed from the scratch in the recent years. There canals, I wouldn't call them the proper canalization for a city like Kabul. On the 24 there has been a shower rain for only half an hour, but most of the road and squares were flooded and people needed boats for crossing from one to another.

These photos may not be as good as I wanted them to be, but can give you a hint of how Kabul is if you haven't seen it.

Kabul Under Reparation!

There is a good hope the government will construct Kabul roads by 60-70 percents by next two years. This shows the city will change its face, but the concern is the quality of work and the corruption. Most of the roads constructed and asphalted last summer were destroyed during the winter in 2011. This road was constructed in fall 2011 and now the municipality is repairing it.

Social Security

In Afghanistan like many other countries in the world there is no social security system. That is there is massive number of aged people who do hard labor work. Not only old people, but we have child labor as well. According to given numbers only Kabul has around 60,000 kids working and begging in the streets. This man here repairs shoes (cobbler). Like him there are 1,000s of others who have cards and/or work on the construction sites.

In Afghanistan there are still a lot of natural things (fruits, vegetables and living styles). I would like to say that bakeries and the way they bake NANs (breads) are traditional. There might be places in the world famous for their bread, but this has a different taste.
