I have been in Afghanistan twice now. In 2015 I visited the Wakhan – a month-long trip that was curtailed unexpectedly and had been longing to get back. My hopes for the security in the country to improve seemed destined to be dashed as the situation deteriorated each year. In 2019 I had decided if I were to go, it had to be now. And so I did, but this time visited the rest of the country.
