June 22, 2010.  Mahmudan High School in Shuhada, Badakhshan.  School is conducted in two shifts, since it's so crowded, so both shifts showed up when we arrived, and the girls gave us flowers and sang us songs.  Afterward, over 40 village elders sat down with us for lunch under the shade of nearby trees.  Photo by Ellen Jaskol.
