Buskashi Game in Peshawar
Afghan Refugees in Pakistan 1988/89
by Dominik Landwehr, Switzerland
The traditional horse game of the Afghans can go on for days. Groups or individuals try to gras a carcass - a dead goat! The game looks very dynamic.
...and attracts spectators both Afghans and expatriates. The winner gets money and a turban from the sponsor which in this game was US consul Mike Malinowski. *
