It’s been almost a year since I started keeping track of which countries have visited this site, and the count currently stands at 110 countries.  WOW!  The visits from new countries has slowed dramatically since there are already so many on the list, so I thought it might be fun to post a door photo from each new country as they’re added.

Today someone from Afghanistan visited the site, so here are two photos from the Asheqan wa Arefan neighborhood of Kabul – one of the Allam Qandahary House, and one of the hand of Fatima on the door of the Asheqan wa Arefans shrine.  Buildings and parks in this area are gradually being repaired and renovated by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC).  There’s an informative Wall Street Journal article if you’re interested in learning more about the undertaking.
