Now Zad wasn’t built in a day
NOW ZAD, AFGHANISTAN (March 10, 2011) — Buildings lay in ruins. Vast stretches of the city are either destroyed or abandoned. Fields are bordered with rocks painted red and white, signifying if they are cleared of mines or if they are still unsafe to walk in. A destroyed Soviet tank lays to the wayside of the streets, clearly identifying the rough battles this area has seen.
