Postcard from a Lost Kabul

Radio producer Marika Partridge sent us this audio postcard. It's comprised of audio tapes recorded in Afghanistan in 1969. The tapes were made when Marika's mom and dad took her and her brother on a one-year journey from India to Europe by car. We hear her family's impressions of the country more than 30 years ago, which at the time seemed to be a place of promise - where modern mixed with ancient, and a place filled with bright friendly people with an admirable spirit of independence.
