A trip to my country Afghanistan

Blue Lake of Bamyan

Blue Lake of Bamyan

I left Afghanistan when I was 13 years old. The journey of escaping my country took us 3 nights and four days using donkey as our transportation. With a small amount of food and drinking the dirty water we got to Peshawar Pakistan which later moved to the capital city 'Islamabad' and lived for three years.


After 27 years living abroad and dreaming of my country, I found a chance to pay a visit to my destroyed homeland and see my family and relatives. Honestly I did not recognize my own country as it has been changed so much and has become so crowded. Most refugees from the neighboring countries have come back and reside in the capital which has doubled or tripled the population of the city with more cars than the roads and streets.

There are no infrastructures, security, and well-governance in the country despite millions of dollars have purred in the country and existence of thousands of international troops but they could not bring peace and security in the country.

People still live in fear has the poverty and joblessness grow in the country. Due to the high volume of people emerging into the city, the weather has become very polluted but there is no one really to take action for improvement. Meanwhile, since the occupation of my country by the US, it has become very expensive to live in Afghanistan particularly Kabul and cost of living is keep growing. Life is still very hard in Afghanistan and I am very sad since I came back home from what I have seen. I hope and pray that everything gets easy and my people live in peace soon.

I'm not looking to be working
by: Anonymous

I'm not looking to be working the 40 40 40 plan... working 40 hours a week, for 40 years of my life and retiring miserably on 40% of my income. I've now stepped up and made the decision that I will take life and every opportunity I get by the horns and lead it to my personal goal of retiring by the age of 28 and helping others do exactly the same. Living a life of health, wealth, happiness and freedom.

by: Anonymous

The age of 21 is where I realised I had to do something productive with my life before it got out of hand. I found a place in an apprenticeship where I moved out and met people from different cultures and that opened my eyes to a whole new world and opportunity out there. I am now a 22 year old working on the railway in a very very credible position for my age career wise!

When we're positive, we're more creative, more motivated and more resilient. We have more energy and we get on better in all areas of our life.

While surfing on internet, I have found your blog and it attracts me due to its amazing land scape pictures of Afghanistan. I had pretty bad image of this as we only know it because of invasion of army.

A trip to my country Afghanistan
by: JamesK

Many refugees from Afghanistan are staying in neighboring countries due to devastating situation of their homeland. There is hopelessness and fear in people of Afghanistan as they are targeted many times. We want to see this very important country of Asia a developed and rich country.

Wow… I bet that no one would have had the idea that Afghanistan would be as beautiful as what is shown and told here. I think it’s the internal conflicts that are making the tourists reluctant to visit the country.

Lets work together my people!
by: Peace 4 my Country

Thanks for visiting your country after 27 years. Yes it has been changed a lot. You may have seen the destruction of the war in the West part of Kabul and elsewhere. The tall buildings are built only in the center of the city but there hasn't been enough attention in rebuilding other parts of the city.

New buildings are being built elsewhere in the city but the majority of people are living under poverty. We Afghans should come together and rebuild Afghanistan by our education, efforts and knowledge. No one will build our country unless we unite and work for a better live in our country Afghanistan.
