I saw this girl sitting there and she reminded me so much of Steve McCurry's famous 1984 shot of the green-eyed Afghan girl.

I got out today as the sun was setting and took some photos of the street. Kids were just getting out of school and many were walking hand-in-hand sharing ice cream from the corner store while starring at the tall gringo with the camera. As I walked through the streets I passed an organized soccer game in the new field, groups of burka-clad women walking their children, and kids racing around on beat up bicycles. It all seemed very normal; a momentary glimpse of what this country is hopefully heading towards.
