    I was in Kabul in 1974/75 and in my letters home I called this hill Dogs Hill. I used to walk from the Interconti down this road and take a bus to Shar-e Naw and other places, but one day I climbed the hill to take some photos. On the way down my path was cut off by a bunch of pretty aggressive dogs, and I had to take a long detour.
    Fond memories of a different Kabul, now gone forever.
    check my Kabul set for some pics taken down this same road.
