When I was living in Chagcharan last year, I heard tell of a Russian soldier who had stayed in Ghor when the rest of his compatriots retreated in 1989. He had settled down, had a wife and children, and to all intents and purposes was now an Afghan.

So I was interested to come across this from the BBC.

Elsewhere on the Beeb website is a series of cartoons by Hozhaber Shinwary that are worth a gander.
