About an Afghan bakery run by widows

This bakery in Kabul, Afghanistan, is run by widows.

 After the death of their husbands, these women established a bakery to generate income. As can be seen from the piles of traditional Afghan flatbreads and small loaves it is clearly a successful venture.

Like M.F.K. Fisher said in 'The Art of Eating', The smell of good bread baking, like the sound of lightly flowing water,is indescribable in its evocation of innocence and delight…”

Food for thought, eh?
