Picture(s) of the Week-ish

The Olympic Stadium.  If you've ever read anything about Kabul, you've probably read about the infamous Olympic Stadium.  It was the sight of applause free soccer matches and public executions.  It is now a place for buzkashi matches and Afghanistan's few olympians' training ground.

From Kabul City Tour

No, the Olympics have never been in Kabul.  No, Kabul has never had an olympic bid.  And yes, there are many copyright infringements in Kabul (like KFC or Kabul Fried Chicken).  Just another one of those things about Kabul that makes me smile.
