Herat Horseback

Arriving in Herat in the West of Afghanistan from Iran was quite magical in 1978. Very few cars, men on horseback and no war.
The so-called communists under the leadership of Taraki had taken power in the capital Kabul just a month earlier but in the rest of the country it seemed very quiet. We could travel all over the place.
