Side note: This is where New Zealand's Provincial Reconstruction Team is located - Bamiyan Province, West of Kabul. So far we've put about US$150 million into their economy in training police, building infrastructure & trying to create a future tourist spot, like it was before. So far NZ troops have had just a few melees but no-one's died yet....
The people that time forgot. Hundreds of Afghans still live in the caves of Bamiyan in conditions that are centuries old. With no running water, electricity or modern comforts of any kind, theyre facing yet another severe winter. Living in the shadow of the big Buddhas blown up by the Taliban, residents say they're fed up with their struggle, but they are too poor to change their life. A voiced AFPTV report.
