Afghanistan Then & Now

Afghanistan Then & Now
Today we launched my latest Yahoo! News interactive feature. It’s on Afghanistan – through the point of view of a journeyman who traveled through the country in 1973 and a civilian worker struggling to rebuild it today. It was fascinating to view the photos that these two people took 30 years apart. It’s amazing how much the country has changed and stayed the same. The scars of war are everywhere. And the people seem to be trying to hold on to their cultural identity even as they are changing due to outside influences.
