Afghanistan Through My Eyes - Nawa District

This photo was taken outside the school in the Village of Gyrowa outside Camp Jaker. This is the bazaar that is comprised of shacks attached to each other with corrugated metal sides and canvas roofing. They are very primitive but this is where the villagers shop. They come from miles around to get spices, their motor cycle fixed, or a new pot etc. 

In the distance you will notice the electronic dish and in the foreground the new concrete bridge. These are courtesy of the Military.

Across the way is the new improved bazaar, made out of concrete with metal door closures, painted a clean white with red trim.

They held the grand opening after a Shura I attended. Here is the Military brass with the Afghanistan Elders of the village talking about the wonderful new improvements.
