We are south of Bozai Gumbaz, going back to Sarhad. This is the first kyrgyz village you encounter in the way to Little Pamir. A smoky atmosphere welcomes us. Badakhshan, Afghanistan.

Little Pamir, near Chaqmaqtin Lake. Few Kyrgyz families live here in their yurts, looking after their animals: sheep, goats, horses, yaks… their life conditions are very tough.

I noticed this man (this young man, he is only 25) on my way to Pamir, in Sultan Ishkashim. When I met him again on my way back, I asked him a permission to take him a picture. His eyes are charming.

An Afghan man walks by stacks of worthless Afghani notes in an underground strongroom of the country’s national bank in Kabul November 29, 2001. Fleeing Taliban members plundered Afghanistan’s national bank and made off with millions of dollars in cash two weeks ago during their hurried retreat from Kabul. The only cash left at the crumbling building consisted of ageing bundles of worthless 100 and 500 Afghani notes, stacked in dusty piles on the ground.
A young amputee boy walks through the Eidgah mosque in the city of Kabul December 8, 2001 where the U.N. World Food Programme (WFP) started its biggest ever food distribution in the Afghan capital on Saturday, handing out sacks of wheat to more than three-quarters of the war-ravaged city’s population.
Afghan refugee children look from the window of their shelter in the former Soviet embassy, a huge compound amid the destruction of west Kabul, November 27, 2001. The area was turned devastated by civil war in the early 1990s and the gunshot-riddled old compound now provides shelter to thousands of people made homeless by two decades of war.
