Front Entrance of the Shrine of Ali

Making ovens for naan

They cook the naan on the interior sides of these monstrous ovens.

The Blue Mosque

The blue mosque is the holiest shrine in Afghanistan and the reputed burial site of Muhammad's son-in-law and cousin, making it the third holiest site behind Mecca and medina for Shias (this is disputed!). We had to go to a million ministries, the governors office and the chief of police to get the booth there!

Afghanistan is dusty, very dusty.
