Favorite thing: Among the most noticable changes in Kabul- visually at least- is the new buildings and construction projects mushrooming around the city. Some rather swanky buildings, including the Kabul Serena, the fancy 5 star hotel. That apart, i was at a shopping mall, that had just gotten ready, complete with escalators and elevators, and also modern looking phone booths, installed across the city.
This was something new and quite a contrast to either of my earlier trips.
That being said, its something that dosent represent the large chunk of its poorer majority, and there are real problems and issues- like power supply. Kabul and the rest of the country, face severe power shortages and diesel gensets are a way of life...
The Government does plan to buy power from the neighbouring countries soon and eventually generate power on its own.
