@Namaki: Yes, they date to when Kabul was one of the highlights of the hippie trail. Quality medical facilities were (still are) rare.
Sweet kitten, like the babies who are in God's Loving arms :)

A very different scene to the usual burning dusty streets. You say it's a British cemetery, this is a German name on the childs headstone.

@Observing: Yes, its called the British Cemetery as its upkeep is funded by the British Embassy. It contains the graves of those British servicemen who fell in the Second Anglo-Afghan War 1878-1880 and of course memorials for those fallen in the present conflict. It also serves as the place of burial for most non-Afghan/non-Muslim who have died in Afghanistan hence many foreign sounding names. In fact there are lots of different nationalities interred - many with very interesting stories - from Danish explorer to Polish geologist. From Californian Digger to British civil servant.....http://www.scotfot.com/britcemhome.htm
