The day was sunny, warm and beautiful, I went to the British Museum with my friend Miss Lady D, to see an exhibition about Afghanistan jewels and finding.  Incredible, loved it! I love when I have the chance to know more about some part of the world that i know nothing about. Was so precious to know a little about the history of this place that is only remembered now as a war territory. But we should forget that these were the Persian lands and it carries mystery and intrigue. Is one of the last places that you have chance t dig and find amazing objects and traces of ancient times.

The jewelry is impressive, so delicate and so thin but at the same time so striking is it's image; exaggerated even. Is a country that is between strong cultures as China, Iran, India, Pakistan, Russian based countries so amazingly all of these cultures left a little print in this country and let's not forget about Alexander and Greek empire which also left their aesthetic to mixed it up with everything else.
Very nice exhibition for who likes archeology and want to know about this not so known country.

There was an amazing quote that i saw on a funeral hommage that said:
