Afganistan - Kabul and Some Parrots

Video of my travels through Afghanistan in 2014. I visited Kabul and would like to share with you this footage of the region and some of the birds and parrots I had seen there. Afghanistan is a devastated war torn country with many years of problems and extreme poverty. You will be able to see some of this through my eyes in my travels through Afghanistan.

Article and video of my travels through Iran during the same trip coming soon. Here is the article and footage from Iraq on the same trip:

Thanks for a great video. I spent three years over there and really learned to love the country and the people. Most of my photos and videos were of wildlife, however.
Amazingly insightful video. U almost never get to see the day to day interactions of these people. Great job with this one

Last time I visited Kabul was five years ago, and they had signs on not to film/pictures. Did you not film when there was no police around or does the police not care?

That was one of the most interesting 5 minutes of my life. Facinating exploration. Looks kinda like Egypt, India, and Indonesia mixed together and it's between those countries. I felt quite all by myself when I woke up on a Malaysian Airways flight over Afganistan seeing everyone else sleeping and the sun glowing golden for hours like sunset from Kuala Lumpur to Paris or London, can't remember which one, but was going to Europe on that back in 2011. Thanks for showing. You are brave.

Thanks for sharing. I feel so sorry for both the people and the birds. I am in the UK and trying to help a gentleman in Iraq with his African Grey who is a chronic plucker on every part of its body. They do not have access to avian vets and can't get pellets to feed their birds so they have an inadequate diets of sunflower seeds which will contribute to its situation because it is likely to be malnourished. Very sad.

What were you doing in Afghanistan? Are you Afghani?
That's not what I would call a holiday . Go to Jurong bird park in Singapore now that's pretty. That place looks like shit.

That is so cruel to keep a bird in that ugly tiny cage

Poor birds. The bidgies and counuries are in so so conditions but deserve better. But the medium and large birds are in horible conditions they dont even have enough room to extend there wings.

Why can't they rebuild Afghanistan like it was before the wars like in the 60s. Sad to see after 17 or more years of war and USA has not changed a thing over there.
Too much terriostm
