Kabul children

The children don't know - or care - about big people stuff like guns and burqas and corruption and horrible roads and bacteria-ridden water and open sewers and and and....

The children just hang out and talk with their friends and play.
They go to school...

Girls in school uniforms.
Boys on their way to a separate school.
And they spend time with their family.

Love the red-striped dress.
This family may be wealthier than many Afghans; they are shopping at a store frequented by internationals where prices are high. But, of course, the store carries stuff that we as westerners can't do without - cheetoes!

Some children have to work.
or beg.

This young street kid, who also goes to school, sold me a map of Kabul.
Some children sift through the garbage on the streets.

On the run.
and a 'thumbs up.'
