    Days of Afghan’s tourism are near, I think.
    Artistic hystoric monuments, landscapes and all atractives of Afghanistan will soon be valorized.
    When transition phase will positively end a new scenario will open on country, a country that will have a natural normal life.
    Tourism will, It is my hope and my wish, drug’s traffic and a new economy will born, thans to authorities efforts.
    My best thanks Claudio Alpaca
