AFGHANISTAN 1969

It was in 1969. From Iran, During few months I went to Herat, Kandahar, Ghazni, Kaboul, Mazar-I-Charif and finaly Bamiyan and Band-I-Amir. I this time, Afghanistan lived in peace. It was before arriving URSS army and now occidental armies in war against Al-Qaida and some Pachtoun peoples. It was the « fault » of Joseph Kessel and his book « Les cavaliers » if I would like to go in this wild country. I never forget Band-I-Amir, proud riders, Bouddhas of Bamiyan and Hazarat people in this part of Afghanistan. Just a few pictures to remember this quiet time.
