Celebrating Voices from Afghanistan

This is the hallway right outside the reception in the Jefferson Building

Haroon Bacha plays traditional music at the reception…there’s a great article on him in the New York Times.

The pretty banner just outside the exhibit

Here’s an example of the calligraphy and art that went into these letters…now if only i could read them!

I like this one

A really cool photo of Afghans listening to RFE. It’s said to be the #1 station in Afghanistan. woot

A  scroll people used to write their letters. Makes Twitter seem kinda cheap

Finally, yours truly in front of the entrance way to the gallery.
