Tourism in Afghanistan

Calling all tourists to Bamiyan (BBC)

What a pity that I missed Bamyan, or the lakes of Bandar Abbas, when visiting Afghanistan around 1975. But I did catch the Blue Mosque in Mazar i-Sharif and other nice things. Back then, the accommodation was halfway decent. If there didn't happen to be a hotel, you could always stay in a {chai-khana} (a tea house), and as for security, you went wherever you pleased - except to approach the yurts of nomads - I was told that to do so unannounced could mean to be shot on sight.
