This a shop in the Orgun Bazaar in eastern Afghanistan. Note the American parachute used as an awning for the storefront. The American military presence in Afghanistan has brought many changes to daily life, both good and bad, for much of the population.

Location: Orgun District, Paktika Province, Afghanistan
