The ghosts of Bamiyan.

A little while back I was watching a program about Afghanistan, which made me want to visit more than ever but don’t tell my mum! It was a fascinating program and I enjoyed every minute, however, one part really stuck with me and caused a lump to form in my throat as they described the atrocity that was The Destruction of the Bamiyan Buddahs by the Taliban.

Today I have been informed by a Travel blog I have linked to my twitter that they have FINALLY got the money and people together to start rebuilding these statues. I am so relieved as it was such an immense loss.
