Be very sensitive to what your host tells you, but here are a few basics. (mostly for women)
1. Never look a man in the eyes, and never attempt to touch a man you are not married to.
2. Always have your head and shoulders covered, and wear longsleeved dresses and loose pants
3. Avoid the religious police and do not travel alone
4. Afghans are wonderfully hospitable but please be aware that it is illegal under the Taliban to visit an Afghan home or to invite them to yours.
A important part of afghan culture is the music and my afghan friend used to sing in Radio Afghanistan. Music was strongly restricted from 1992 and became totally banned by Taliban in 1996. Now music is once again allowed.
