During our week in Mazar-i-Sharif I really fell in love with the city. The whole place, especially just before dusk, is enshrouded in this really soft, beautiful light. For being in a desert climate, the city is surprisingly colorful. The buildings are brightly painted, but everything is faded a bit from the strong sun. So all of the colors are more pastel than they are bold. The dust in the air creates a dreamy sort of haze too. Really, it's a pretty phenomenal place.
Here are some scenic shots from our last few days in Mazar-i-Sharif.
