Vacationing in Afghanistan -- Leaving the chaotic city confines of Kabul, 'Vacationing in Afghanistan' enters a world rarely seen by Westerners. While crossing Afghanistan's mountainous region to the enormous Buddha statues left in ruins by the Taliban, two American filmmakers enjoy common bonds with the Afghan people. Through simple interactions between two very different cultures, the war on terror, poverty, and the heroin trade that splash Afghanistan across global news headlines seems to fade away. This film doesn't attempt to address the complex geopolitical maze and problems facing the country, it merely enjoys spontaneous encounters with its people and celebrates the endearing humor of the Afghans.
