"Fragile Afghanistan" Afghanistan by jkseddon

Afghanistan Travel Guide: 459 reviews and 1,137 photos

It should go without saying that travel to Afghanistan entails some risk but provided you do your research and avoid certain areas, the risk is diminished drastically.

Just the name 'Afghanistan' brings so many images to mind -- many of which turn out to fairly accurate. The country bears so many scars from war but despite a quarter century of fighting the people are remarkably optimistic for the future.

I found email updates that I subscribed to very helpful in order to keep on top of developments without having to surf graphics-intensive websites. Take a look and subscribe to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty's third branch covering Afghanistan and the Middle East.
