Looks like folks all over the world have been busy! First up, Kabul, Afghanistan.

Kabul University

The University of Kabul was founded in 1931, opened in 1932 and formally established in 1947. In the 1950s and 60s the university was one of the finest institutions of its kind in Asia, the intellectual heart of the country and the pride of Afghanistan.

Ruined Office Building, Kabul

This former governmental building is located at Darul Aman, close to the famous Darul Aman Palace, from where Afghan kings used to rule the country. A decent touch of former noblesse still catches the viewer, when standing in front. Yet, the appearance of this ruin is a tragic reminder of the extended and fierce fighting in Kabul.

Residential Solitaire, Kabul

Modern living quarter designed as a solitaire and located near to Kabul University.
