Bamiyan Review: Trying Afghan food for the first time at Bamiyan

In middle school I knew these two guys Oliver and Jacob. Oliver was Chinese and Jacob was white. And sometimes when we were joking about something, we'd say to Jacob, "Hey man, don't forget. We built your damn railroads." It was a fun joke when you're a 1% minority in race and a 0.01% minority in religion. Gotta put 'em crackers in their place even as a youngster.
