Some more pictures from Afghanistan

So, earlier this week, we visited a district (county) in the northern part of Panjshir called Khenj. We meet with the District Minister of Education (think county superintendent) and visited some potential sites for a new school that a local village wanted to have built. Currently, the students were attending school in two tents (two other tents still needed tables and chairs to be constructed) and the school director's house. Currently the students go to school in shifts (3 shifts a day, 2 for boys, one for girls). About 300 students are enrolled. Below are some of the pictures from the visit.

The school director's house where a class is going on. This just breaks my heart.

So cute, I had to put them up here

The ol' kabab stand.
