A village elder in in a village along the river Panj – see the link for a bit of background! This is the man who welcomed us traditionally by offering us bread.

I have no idea at all what this village was called, but it was along the river Panj, which forms much of the border between Tajikistan and Afghanistan.

I have two passions: travel and photography – and these are often combined. Though even in my own city I often have a camera with me!

    Dat zie je zo……een groot man !!!!!

  • Ja… :) Hier stond hij ons eerst eens rustig te observeren. Pas toen hij zag dat we ons respectvol gedroegen en geen overlast veroorzaakten verdween hij, en kwam terug met zijn twee broden (overhandigd aan onze locale gids) om ons officieel welkom te heten.

    Dank voor je commentaar, Mariola!
