As usual, Kandahar region is dangerous and has always been unsafe for ages. No regrets, Kandahar city is quite ugly. You'll miss the old men in the central park who used to spend the summer nights listening their nightingales in their cages of reed... No regrets, no old men with birds anymore, I think. Talebans banned the song of birds too...
The country both sides of the long road from Kandahar to Herat in impressive in the daytime: desert of stones, black hills, awful heat, tornadoes of dust.
But I presume, you'll travel to Herat by plane, won't you? Herat, the city of soufis... Je vous envie! Comme je vous envie!!!
Ba-amane Khoda!
