It's a country big the double of Italy, mountainous, in bad condition, poor and frightened by wars without an end, from tribali struggles and religious.
An inviting nation is not sure at present; the attractions are fews and there are a lot of risks and difficulties. Those who have been able are refugee, above all to Peshawar in Pakistan.
However climbing up the bends of the Kyber Pass, the old border of the British Empire In The Indie, causes strong emotions.
