My heart is torn between East and West. I live somewhere between the present and the past. I don't know who I am.


Just another human being biding their time on this earth. Passionate about current affairs, history, politics (particularly MENA region), religion, cute animals and food.

What have those beautiful eyes seen? Lashkar Gah, Helmand Province, Afghanistan

"On a recent trip to Afghanistan, I was in Lashkar Gah and met this lady who is a sergeant in the local Counter Narcotics Unit. She picked up my helmet and asked to have a photo taken. I was told later that, in a former life, she was an interrogator and had skinned at least two Russian soldiers alive. A chance encounter on a risky trip - what have those beautiful eyes seen?"
