NO WWW WHERE I WAS & WHERE THE FOLLOWING POSTS ARE FROM ** The horseback game of “Buzkashi” is one of the most popular amongst central and south Asian countries. For the “wrestlers” as the participants are known, the famous heroism of the inhabitants of The Panjshir Valley, north of Kabul, comes to the fore in a game that combines polo and rugby, with a couple of differences. 1. There are three teams instead of two. And 2. The ball is replaced by a headless goat. #buzkashi #sport #sports #polo #horse #panjshir #afghanistan #reportage #photojournalism #documentaryphotography
