This elder in the village of Kizkut (a population of 149), said to me when I arrived, “I'm sorry that I have nothing to offer you but tea and bread.” and I replied "The most important thing you could give me was a welcome and a smile, and you have done that.” #Afghanistan   #Wakhan

This is the friendly Boba. He is a master player of shakran - a game similar to draughts/checkers. Boba was the champion of Ishkashim and he beat all his rivals, including easily defeating me. #Afghanistan #Ishkahsim
