In March 2001, the two statues were destroyed by the Taliban, here you can see the niche of the large statue.

Bamiyan was the site of several Buddhist monasteries. Many Buddha statues were carved into the rock. The rock statues were located near the city of Bamiyan. The two largest statues measured without their niches in which they stood, 53 and 35 meters in height. Today, only their niches are left. (Source: Wikipedia)

    So saftig grün können die Täler werden!
    Sattes tiefes Grün.
    So beeinduckend habe ich das noch auf keinem Foto gesehen.

    Heute ist nach langer Zeit wieder ein deutscher Soldat in Afghanistan gefallen.
    Und sieben weitere Soldaten anderer Nationen.
    Über die Anzahl der getöteten Afghanen wurden in den Nachrichten keine Angaben gemacht.
