Travel to Afghanistan
The Trip of your Lifetime!
Hello. I'm here to tell you why YOU should make travel plans to Afghanistan.
Afghanistan is a beautiful country with friendly people. If you stay in somebody's home, they will treat you with great respect and provide you with the best food that they have.
Now for some festivals. Afghans celebrate Nav Roz, which is their New Years celebration. Nav Roz is in January to March. Their Labour Day is May 1st. Afghanistan's Independence Day is called Jeshyn-Afghan Day, and it is on August 19th.
Let's talk clothing. The clothes that Muslim women wear are called Burkas, and they cover the women's face and body in public. Afghan men's clothing for cooler seasons is a shawl that they call a Shaal.
Afghanistan has many genres of music. They include: classical, folkloric, contemporary amature, new age, traditional, and instrumental. There is lots of music to enjoy if you travel to Afghanistan!
Afghanistan's coordinates are 34.5333° N, 69.1333° E. Its neighbouring counties are: China, Iran, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.
Some climate information for Afghanistan is: it has 0 square kilometers of water. Afghanistan also has cold winters and hot summers. There are some rugged mountains and plains.
Some languages that are spoken in Afghanistan are: Afghan Persian, Dari, Pashto, Uzbek, Turkmen, Balochi, and Pashai. The population is 31 822 848.
Some food and drinks that you can enjoy when you get to Afghanistan are: kababs, bread, rice dishes, fruit and nuts, dairy products, and tea. Afghans often don't use cutlery, and they are fond of non-vegetarian dishes.
An issue that I heard of in Afghanistan is that the Taliban governments have banned public music making. They have arrested people and destroyed their instruments.
A historical event that has an effect on Afghanistan forever is how they gained their independence. During the Third Anglo-Afghan War, Britain gave Afghanistan their independence on August 19th, 1919.
