Kabul My Capital promoted

Dear readers, viewers and friends!

Thank you for your full support and encouragements for the last 15 months. When I started this Photoblog, I didn't think I would supported as I am today. Your supports and encouragements gave me the confidence to start a new phase of posting photos of Afghanistan. As of today I am honored to invite you to my website KabulCapital, I don't say I will not post in here, but I will pay more attention on the website to make it as interactive as possible and show you as much as I can from Afghanistan a country that has always been shown as center of terrorism and negative. My job here is not to show the bad side of it, because media are already doing it. I will try my best to show the real and day-to-day life and the very little things happening here.

Most of my photos will come from Kabul and that is because I am limited in traveling these days, but I can say with confidence that Kabul has enough to be shown to the people outside.

Mandawi

Mandawi is not only the largest whole sale market in Kabul, but also in Afghanistan. I assume 70 percent of the consumer goods traders have an agency or their entire business here. The market is normally a whole sale bazaar, but people from around Kabul come to this place to buy their stuff (consumer goods). In this market you can buy anything you need (home appliances to smallest thing, clothes, hardware and food items). Close to the area there is the bird market where you can find almost any kind of pets as well.

One of the good things is Kabul is the existence of jugglers and street sellers. When I say jugglers and street sellers, this means, Afghans who sell stuff (medicines for different purposes, especially for sexual stamina and men's health), but besides selling they have their unique way of marketing. They have snakes shows and playing with cards to stick people and they leave the show half to sell stuff, then start the rest of the show.
