Melons & Grapes 2016 Photo Story

“It’s Friday. The sun is shining from a blue sky, as it has done every day but one on this whole trip. Behind me is the Tomb of Massoud, the leader of Mujaheddin for many years and killed by Al-Qaeda in 2001, only two days before September 11. In front of me: the Panjshir Valley. About week earlier I had the pleasure of overlooking another valley, the Bamiyan. Both valleys have of many been described as belonging to the most beautiful places in Afghanistan. And they´re not only places of sheer beauty, they both play an important part in Afghan history.”

If you have a few moments please have a read and look at Tommy Nilsson’s two part photo story on Afghanistan which covers our Melons & Grapes 2016 autumn trip to Afghanistan.
