Packing for your adventure in Afghanistan

The more you travel, the more you realize that you need much less to travel comfortably than you previously thought.  Bring as little as you can without creating unnecessary hardship.  A good rule of thumb is to only take what you can carry by yourself for at least one kilometer.
