    It's about an hour's drive north of Kabul, in the foothills of the Hindu Kush. You can see one of Massoud's bombed out villas, currently a post for Afghan security foreces, and stroll the main drag of the artisan village there, with little concern (MUCH safer than Chicken Street - and no children pestering you for bashkeesh).

    On my Kos homepage, I have a bunch of links to Afghan blogs, microfinance groups, and NGOs, as well as photos and the blog of my trip to Afghanistan. I'm going back again in late summer or early fall.

    Stay safe!

      I´ll have to connect with some of these groups about the solar tactics idea once I get home.  Thanks for assembling such a great blogroll.
