    HERE TABLE A FEW TIPS TO BE...

    HERE TABLE A FEW TIPS TO BE CONSIDER:-

    LOCAL POLITICAL SCENARIO

    Our Afghanis is very frank but coutious with foreigner especially non Muslim. They have their own International Network, to read all kind of criticism
    in any established News Paper, Articles or Mass Media.
    Do not play JAMES BONDthere. Even our UNCHR's personel are *screening* continiously by them.


    EATING & DRINKING.
    Avoid to bring your spare Liquor or Beer into this country. Afghanistan is Strict Muslim Country. Malaysia is a Muslim Country too, but Liquor & Beer can be consume and sale by nonMuslim only.


    EATING
    Give an extra precaution. Last time during my tour, all animal slaughter NOT DONE by Slaughtering House. All kind of four legs animal which allowable to be eaten by Islam, are slaughtering any where; never care about the condition of the animal. My experiance eating Beefsteak here teach me a lot. Almost every eating time, including breakfast I'm having this Beefsteak. The taste of meat coming differently on each time odering. At last known....Cow, Buffalo, Camel and Donkey and may be Elephant become *Beefsteak*. The price of taking this beefsteak...I got the diarroea, suffered for nearly a week.

    Afghanistan is still a dangerous place to travel in. Landmines, armed bandits etc. are out there in the countryside. Probably the city of Kabul is the most safe place to be.
