    Where was this picture taken?

    According to the legend it was taken in an Afghan record store in the 50s/60s, just made me think.

  5. It is my understanding that prior to the wars, Afghanistan was quite the place to be and mini skirts were in. Certainly isn't now.

    A classic part of the hippie trail. All you needed was a VW camper van:

  7. Are you suggesting the country regressed under the Soviets + Puppets. With the takeover of the Taliban how much remaining culture was destroyed.

    You would need a time machine to make the pic Current Affairs !! :)
  9. Scary to think what a bunch of inbred zealots can do. One step forward two steps back.

  10. If you read The Kite Runner, that does allude to the relatively affluency of the place up until the late 70's. Being then stuck between the two Cold War monoliths wasn't the best place to be.
    As been said, was a key part of the old hippie trail which in turn was the Silk Route.
  11. From those in the know please, but how shaggable are the afghan girls?

    Actually, how many blokes can truly claim to have got their leg over more than a goat???
  12. Thats a great insite into Afghans past. The photo of the soldiers is interesting, they are wearing German WW2 helmets.
  13. Normally they are quite attractive, but you have to look through the ravages of the 8th world sh1t hole they have to endure. They are truely awesome people. As are a lot of the men.

    Shame a few rotten apples spoil it all. Most of the nation couldn't give a fcuk less about what happens outside of the country, both good and bad. Some understand the 'bigger picture' but with no credible news or communications system many are extremy isolationist.

    The country has been a bullies playground for far too long.
