It is hard to keep your money. It is too much great things to buy. Antiques from the different times of war are sold in off streets. Imagining all the foreign troops that have been in Afghanistan you get a picture of what you will find here. Russian plates from the tsar times until the 70′s. Most of them are even dated. The afghan wool blankets, patu, which are worn as jackets by the men are my favorites. They think it is funny that a woman dress like a man. I have tried to find things, apart from fabric and handcraft that is produced here but somehow most things are imported. I guess the main customer group are expats and they want their own brands. there are Not even Matches from Afghanistan. When I ask what they produce, everyone answers Opium.
