    Nobody encouraged me when I decided to enter Afghanistan, the land where the conflicts still going on. Everybody tried to change my mind. However, as my adventurous spirit whipped up and with enthusiasm and strong will, "Ride For Peace" has to visit Afghanistan........

    Khyber Pass is known as an unsafe area for foreigner. The area controled by Warlords who have they own troops and rules. To pass through this area, one should be careful since the condition of the nature with bare hills and the sinous and a very quite road........

    I arrived safely in Torkham in the afternoon. The border troops were amazed with my motorcycle and made them more surprised when they knew my intention to go to Jalalabad and Kabul in Afghanistan. As from a beginning, they suggested me to be better not to enter Afghanistan. Knowing my strong intention, they promised to have celebration party when I could return safely in Torkham. They proved their promise, when I came back in Torkham 1 week later. They applauded and welcomed me back to Pakistan with 'chai' (tea) and 'chapati' (bread). Later on I knew that they made my journey as a bet since they had experiences that many people crossed the border, didn't return back safely.

    Experiencing once is much better than hearing hundred times. The heat of the dessert, the freeze of snowy mountains become our good friends and give big spirit to explore this beautiful planet more and more...Happy adventure and have a good trails ...
