Great holmertz 2019-12-08 9:00

Hello Kasia,
Finally in Afghanistan! ;-) I have waited patiently for these photos, and the main one is a real beauty. There is such a nice atmosphere and good contact between the man and the boy outside. And those three standing in the doorway are so perfectly framed by the green wood. Technically it's also an outstanding photo. I love the WS too. In this photo and that of the men in the street it looks like absolutely nothing has happened in Afghanistan since the early 1970's. But I know it has.
Also your note (of course) is highly interesting. Getting an Afghan visa has always generally been very easy. I even got one (with some diplomatic assistance) from the Taliban. But I remember entering from Iran in 1972 required quite a lot of paper work at the border lasting for an hour or two, but in a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere which made me so happy. I think that first evening in Afghanistan was the highlight of all my travels.
And would you believe it? This one has to go to my favourites!
Best wishes,
Gert

Not that one, the second one, based on your travel diary. :-)
