On the way from Herat to Qalal-i-Naw

The distance from Herat to Qala-i-Naw is only 150 kilometres but it takes seven hours to arrive in Qala-i-Naw.
The road is very bad, the scenary is beautiful.


We are travelling with 5 cars. In front and in the back of the convoy are cars with armed police men. The car I am travelling in is the second car.


On the way we stop twice to strech our legs. The police from Herat escorts us to the province boundary. There the police of Badghis is waiting for us.


There are not many people on the road. It is very hot. Once in a while we pass a village. It is like being back in the middle ages.
