Much apart from war


A story about Afghanistan is a story about wars and conflict – but also about fun and games, culture, traditions and beauty.

Afghanistan is also a place where games and sports are popular pastimes for all ages, where both men and women are concerned with their appearance, where spirits and talismans, music and dancing are integrated parts of everyday life.

That story will also be told here. We will tell about the ‘henna night’ before an Afghan wedding, about a musician who preached insurgency through his music, about Kabul’s 300 gyms and about Afghanistan’s glorious football victory at the East Asian Cup in 2013. And much, much more.
