I've been saving up for a massive "things I like" post (read: I haven't had time to actually put it together), but I decided this was too important to wait.
Steve McCurry, the man who shot that iconic photo of the Afghan girl with the green eyes for National Geographic, has a blog. He just recently made an entire post on Afghanistan, and the photos are incredible.
The story he tells is nearly as moving as the pictures. I'd strongly recommend reading it.
