The whole in the background was once the home of a magnificent 6th Century Buddha stature that sadly was destroyed in 2001. The spot however is still magical. In fact the area around is one of my favorite place in Afghanistan. Especially watching the sun set while sitting in the top whole where the head once used to be is stunning.
Erika volunteers for Skateistan and this picture was taken several years back when she was teaching ollies to girls in Kabul.
