Earlier this week a representative with Global Exchange, which I traveled on one of their opens in a new windowAfghanistan Reality Tours, contacted me regarding this post ( opens in a new windowLaughing in Afghanistan) requesting to post it on their blog. In respect of timing, I’ve posted this image showing a young girl’s hands holding a Koran while praying. Not sure what it is about this photo but it’s one of my favorites from the trip.
