Men of Afghanistan

Forget about your media stereotypes of Afghan men - they are far from the brutal warriors most media projects them as.  The men of Afghanistan are surprisingly handsome, kind and interested in meeting new people as their country rebuilds.  It's one of the aspects of a visit to the country which surprises foreigners. 

The resilience of Afghan society post-Taliban and after nearly 30 years of war makes a visit to the country one of life's most rewarding experiences.
