To Live And Skate in Kabul

Last year I wrote about Skateistan, a program introducing skateboards to kids in Afghanistan. Orlando von Einsiedel has just released a beautiful short film about the project called, “Skateistan – To live and skate in Kabul”. These kids are awesome.

    This is just ridiculously amazing. Those people from Skateistan are doing a wonderful thing there. My deepest respect to them.
    In my opinion this is a far better view on the situation there than if you have some big-time journalists go over there and invterview the higher ups, the people in power.
    It’s the kids that will have to change the future of Afghanistan, and if they find common interests in stuff like skating, that’s just amazing.
