Traffic Cop 1

A motorcade full of distinguished visitors is not an unusual sight in Bamyan. Every foreigner in Afghanistan wants to go to Bamyan at some point in their time here. It's peaceful, it's beautiful, it features the niches that were once home of the monumental Buddhas.

Even so, I have to guess that this gentleman, dutifully carrying out his traffic-direction charge on this nearly empty corner, was paying a bit more attention than he normally might were a VIP motorcade not passing by. Either that or he just takes a lot of pride in his work on this not-so-busy corner, and deserves a raise.
