16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Spring of Afghanistan

In the Pamirs Plateau, you can see Afghanistan beyond a narrow river. The water height is not very high, so you can only feel here is the border between Tajikistan and Afghanistan when you meet soldiers patrolling everywhere. It was so peaceful that it was hard to imagine that the terrible things had happened at here. And spring also was coming here without fail like another place. The river that had frozen all winter melted and the children were playing outside.
