Pomegranates in Kandahar
My friend and former boss posted this photo of a pomegranate seller from his recent trip to Kandahar. As I noticed during my time in Kabul, from afar we often aren’t aware of the small signs of normalcy and progress in conflict zones. The header at the top of my blog is a photo I took one night as I chatted with a roadside fruit seller in central Kabul. I keep it as a reminder that even in the most extraordinary contexts and challenging circumstances there are always people that figure out how to make things work.
