Bill's Long Way Home

Bill Lucas left Vietnam a First Lieutenant and proceeded to take "the long way home." For years, he traveled across the world.
Here for the first time is his commentary along with the pictures he took and developed himself.

Kabul Marketplace No. 5 | Early 1970’s
A stall next to the Kabul river shows the various sides of the country with the woman in the burqa, the donkey carrying its load, and the modern buildings.  The pace of life was definitely slow but most seemed comfortable and there were few beggars (compared with India and Pakistan where they were everywhere in great numbers).
