Times Photographer Captures Kabul Changes

The following is from

Tyler Hicks, a staff photographer for The New York Times, talks about how much Kabul has changed between his first visit in 2001 and his last visit three weeks ago.

Hicks was embedded with the Marines in the southern Helmand Province until June.

He says there was much confusion in 2001 as he arrived in the Afghan capital. Things are much calmer now, he says, though there are isolated events that can be even more traumatic than during his arrival.
