Another Stroll in the Hindu Kush #3

11/August/2005 – Peshawar to Kabul

I awoke early, had my usual Paki breakfast then went down to the Rose
Hotel office to meet Prince. It was a small taxi that drove around to
the Khyber Agency office to pick-up the armed guard. While waiting for
the guard I watch some small boys herding goats…in downtown
Peshawar…then we were off to Torkham. It was a bit hazy, but it felt
great to be heading back into the good ol’ Khyber Pass. Not much had
changed since the first time I came through in the autumn of 1972. When
we stopped to put water in the radiator I got out and took some photos.
The guard was nice enough to lend me his AK-47 for a classic shot in the
Khyber Pass.
