The road from Herat to Mazar-i-Sharif was rough and mostly unpaved. It crossed several mid-sized ranges of craggy mountains, a few lush river valleys, and vast expanses of sparsely populated desert. It took several days of physically demanding and exhausting travel. Long hours of travel through open country were broken by occasional villages, such as this one with its typical mud buildings.

1977, 1999 Richard McGuire
