Against the Wall – An Afghan Evacuation Story – Part 1

On Aug 15th, the day Kabul fell to the Taliban, Basir and his family made their first attempt to get into the airport and onto a plane. It would be nearly a month before they escaped into Pakistan. Over the next weeks they would be beaten at Taliban checkpoints, endure crushing crowds and be threatened and sworn at by soldiers from around the world.

    Michael,
    I am amazed on a few levels.
    But I like the look of the goats, and your peaceful hotel courtyard (?).
    Your images bring back to me Ethiopia Peace Corps time.
    I hope your preparations are a great success!
    Peter
