Parents leave October 8th or 9th for three weeks; totally throwing a party.

Barbara Walters of 20/20 (ABC Television) did a story on gender roles in
Kabul, Afghanistan, several years before the Afghan conflict. She noted that
women customarily walked 5 paces behind their husbands. She recently
returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands.

husbands and are happy to maintain the old custom.

Ms. Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked, "Why do you now

The woman looked Ms. Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation,
said, "Land mines."
