Afghanistan In The 1960s. Prepare To Be Very, Very Surprised.

In the 1960s, Dr. William Podlich took these pictures (and a LOT more) of Kabul, Afghanistan. I couldn't believe what a beautiful and vibrant place it was before being torn apart by more than 30 years of war.

Not surprised. I have read books about how lush, beautiful and thriving this area was. Wasn't the Kite Runner centered on growing up in Kabul before and after the fall?

I've seen pictures of women dancing in cocktail dresses at parties.

What war and a theocracy will do...
