LE DÉJEUNER SUR LE TAPIS
San Fransisco 2011

After more than 20 years living outside Afghanistan, I returned and joined in a traditional picnic. It is a full day event; you start early, and with a car packed with many of your household belongings, you set off, stopping to get the best bread, best meat, best fruits... Hours later you find yourself in the shadow of a huge tree, lying on a rug, enjoying an afternoon of rest and great home-cooked food.
