Ben Hammersley is in Afghanistan.

Ben Hammersley
is in Afghanistan. If you aren’t reading this, it’s worth it. All of
Central Asia is so far-removed from Western experience, that it’s
always fascinating to see the collision. Think about it, it really
wasn’t until 1992 that this part of the world became easily (very
loosely construed) accessed by outsiders, most of whom had no reason or
desire to go anyway, with the exception of spooks and smugglers.
