In 1967, Dr. William Podlich and his family went to Afghanistan for two years while he taught at a teacher's college in Kabul. He took plenty of photographs during his stay, which show Aghanistan as a fairly progressive country in which foreigners were welcome, girls went to school, the military was strong, universities thrived, libraries and archaeological sites were protected, and lush parks were maintained. What a difference 40 years of war makes! See a selection of Dr. Podlich's photos at the Denver Post. Link -via the Presurfer
