A war-torn country with people smiled as wide as their face. I accidentally entered Afghanistan when its border to Pakistan went immigration check-less for humanitarian relief due to a massive earthquake back in 2005.
Staying one night in Kabul, awaken in the middle of the night by a zing of bullet zipped above my head through the wooden wall was not considered as my idea of traveling. I survived. And the horror continued – escalated – when I returned to the border, looking at my visa-less passport, only to find out that the immigration border was back on operation.
