For those who don’t know Afghan Scene, this monthly magazine is a mine of information with background pieces and what’s going on in Kabul. Click here for the latest edition. (February, 2013)
Letter from the Editor – By the Afghan Scene Team
Afghan Scene is, for this issue only, Halfghan Scene, in honor of the honest look into what its like to not know where you fit in, a story by designer and artist Maria Iqbal.
For this issue, the magazine would also like to congratulate Sam French and his cast and crew for their nomination for an Oscar! Hopefully, we’ll all hear the good news that they won on February 24th – or most likely the 25th, unless you’re staying up to watch it.
Though this issue is text heavy, Scene thinks it is be worth the read – ranging from a thoughtful and thought provoking look at development in Afghanistan, to a sentimental look at a Marine units pet.
This issue also features James Robertson’s stark and clean photos of off piste skiing in Bamyan as well as the smoothly written and informative writing of Edward Girardet.
As always, hope you enjoy.
