Turquoise Mountain

Turquoise Mountain is an organization created to preserve and pass on some of the Afghan artistic traditions that were in danger of fading due to the years and decades of war. Sadly, your faithful correspondents could only visit on a Friday, which is our day off - and of course is the day off for the woodcarvers and calligraphers and such at Turquoise Mountain, too. Fortunately, there were a few intrepid students from the miniature-painting class who were practicing their skills on a Friday. Impressive stuff from some young artists - boys and girls alike.
