Amazing descriptions of Afghanistan in the 60s,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Full Tilt: Ireland to India with a Bicycle (Kindle Edition)
This is really one of the most interesting books I've ever read, and Dervla Murphy at her best (which is saying something of such a wonderful storyteller). The only thing I had reservations about was the apparent reflections that people living as subsistence farmers in the Himalayas were better off without education, but this was, also, obviously meant as a way of saying that we have a lot to learn from their way of life.
