Photo of the day

Really nice set of Afghanistan photos via Alan Taylor.  I especially enjoyed these two:

A villager makes his way across a bridge that connects Qasamabad, Afghanistan, to a school in the village of Baghban in Daykundi province, on December 10, 2011. Coalition special operations forces evaluated the condition of the bridge to explore the possibility of making improvements to provide students with a safer way to cross over the river below.(US Navy/Petty Officer 1st Class Matthew Leistikow) #  

Grover, a character from “Sesame Street” walks with Afghans at the French Culture Center in Kabul, on November 30, 2011. Children in Afghanistan are now able to start their education as millions of preschoolers around in the world have: by watching “Sesame Street” on TV. (Reuters/Omar Sobhani) # 

I’m a sucker for scary bridges and dramatic juxtapositions.
