1975 Afghanistan

454. Afghanistan 1975 – Salang

Hello – Welcome to WDEOD, a site full of Doris’ photographs!

Its purpose is to share the shots she took in her 50+ years of travel. I’m trying to do a post a film – so one tour may have many posts.
To see what I’ve put up so far, use the menu (three lines up there ↑ if you are on a phone or tablet) to go to a place or a year.


There is always a moment of joy when, presented with a series of images, I can identify one or if I stick it into Google Images someone, somewhere has taken the same view and kindly noted where they were.

The shots here were of the Salang Tunnel, built by the Soviets to allow north Afghanistan and Kabul to become accessible to each other.

As previously she was in Mazar, I assume the ruins are somewhere near the AH76 road.
