Taloqan Walls

Along the surprisingly neat road leading from the town of Taloqan out to the airstrip, this shows the principle mode of Afghan home construction: Mud. At least in the north and west of the country, there are just no trees. So mud bricks it is. I would guess the cross-beams for the roof are hauled in from down near the Pakistan border.
