Woman doing laundry. Kalash Valley, Kafiristan, Pakistan. This area is right on the Afghan border. I was there in May this year, also last year. Life is simple, traditional in small villages. The woman is washing her laundry in a water channel in front of her traditional house. My friends in Pakistan informed me yesterday that this area is now closed to tourists as it was attacked two days ago by the Afghan Taliban. They sent me videos of the shooting and gunfire. Glad it did not happen when I was there, but I sure feel sorry for these people here.

Wishing all of us a much more peaceful a and happy Friday and weekend than in this region just now.

I remember being surprised in 1970 to find village women washing clothes in a stream deep in the mountains of northern Portugal but over 50 years later here they are still doing it.
Let's hope the Taliban don't cause too much trouble.
HFF Diana & have a great weekend.

Excellent document about hard life in this remote place! It's really disturbing that Afghan talibans interfere with neighbouring countries with such violence. HFF, Diana!
