Item description for An Afghan Journey by Roger Willemsen & Stefan Tobler...
I ask a nomad boy: why do you have a green spot on the bridge of your nose? 'So they can find me again' , he replies. And where do you think I come from? 'From China'. 'Hello. Mister, what s your matter?' another one asks me. And I say: No matter. 'So what are you doing?' Just visiting , I reply. He turns to his friend and shouts: 'Look, first tourist'. And of course, he was right. I thought: mine is the view of a first tourist. Only a few months after a 25-year-long war ended in Afghanistan, Roger Willemsen accompanied a friend on her journey home: from Kabul to Kunduz, through the legendary steppe to the river Oxus, the boundary to Tadzhikistan. This is his journal of adventurous travels in an awakening country.
