Today was a day for anyone and everybody to come to the skatepark and check out the park, the classrooms and to look a this "new" activity called skateboarding. Ahmad, a 21 old afghan, a great teacher and good cook sang the Koran whereas General Aghbar, head of the Afghan Olympic Comitee gave a impressive speech. The place was busy and I had all sorts of things on my plate and sadly only managed to get a picture towards the end of the day, still a good indicator on what the park looks like.
Nail polish is also huge it seams. At one time there must have been a donation of a whole lot of peach colored nail polish bottles. I have seen so many street kids with the exact same colored finger nails. Including the boys by the way!

Private Circle Design is a Italian collection that re-uses ordinary objects and materials with the aim of inspiring people to find their own possibilities instead of throwing away objects that can have an extra life with a new function. During the opening last night, they invited visitors to come and dress up with their design work which was great fun. On the picture you can see the cassette wallet made out of old tapes. The packaging is a cardboard music player and the user can pull out all sorts of little tags and gadgets.
