This photo was added to our Flickr group by Michal Przedlacki, perhaps inspired by Thursday's post about TV culture in Cuba. Here, a few Afghans wait for electricity in order to watch television at a tea house in Afghanistan's Takhar province.

Przedlacki's caption reads:

"Afghans, like any other nation, love to watch television. Some of [the] most prominent TV programs are soap operas from Turkey, an Afghan version of Millionaire, [and] news. ... Programs run on Afghan channels are subject to strict censorship. [Any image] of a God another than Allmight Allah is banned and blurred on a television screen. So are arms or legs of women or anything more exposed than what a typical Afghan dress covers."

What's TV culture like where you live?
