Asia Grace


Kunduz, Afghanistan

Two men load up a camel for the long haul back to their farms. This caravanasi is no longer used much for long-distance caravans. At one time the rooms along the perimeter were inn rooms, housing overnight visitors. Now they are mostly storerooms, tiny warehouses for farmers who journey into town to replenish their staples. They'll buy cloth, pots, tools, rice, spices, and gifts for their families. A camel is expensive and ranks like having a pick up truck.
