Re: Afghanistan (Kandahar, Kabul, Bamiyan) Solo female backpacker (no tour) – Trip Report

Re: Sexual abuse/attack on Australian female tourist in Wakhan

Thanks for sharing. Yes I have heard of another woman who was molested by a guard. Another woman who encountered a man in a restaurant who tried to kiss her. Sexual assaults against women happens regularly all over the world. There's no reason to think this part of the world is different.

Thanks for your informative report. I'm not sure ...
