Lady on a bike


I have seen so many great decorated bikes in Kabul. This young lady was glued on a bike that was parked in the basement of a shopping center and I finally managed to get a shot. Don't miss the Toshiba flags on the side!

Adventures of a german public bus in Kabul

Ok, I had to post this because it is so funky!  How dose a brand new German public transport bus gets on the roads of Afghanistan capital of Kabul? RVO stand for Regional Verkehr Oberbayern which means as much as that the bus belongs or lets say used to belong to the public transport system of Bavaria. The province where I am from, I used to take those buses every morning to go to school.  Check out the number plate! Classic! I would love to know the story behind that bus. How did it get there?

Kabuls New Shopping Center

Gulbahar Center in downtown Kabul opened its doors not long ago, luxury, glitter, cappuccino, elevator and even a underground car park. It was rather empty when i went there but apparently its the hang out spot for the "cool" kids.
