174 – Shadow of the Silk Road

Das Buch ist 2008 erscheinen. Allerdings war die Situation im Norden Afghanistans – der Teil, durch den Colin Thubron reiste – vor 2009 „relativ friedvoll“. Wikipedia berichtet: „While this part of the country had long been relatively peaceful compared to the all-out war zones of the south and east, tensions would flare up again in 2008 when the German soldiers deployed to the area came under attack more often, leading to the deaths of the several soldiers.“ 2015 fand der Kampf um die Stadt Kunduz statt, der laut Wikipedia über 100,000 Menschen in die Flucht trieb. Laut einem UN-Bericht „at least 848 civilians were killed or wounded following the Taliban attack“ (Reuters https://www.reuters.com/article/us-afghanistan-fighting-report/at-least-848-afghan-civilian-casualties-in-kunduz-u-n-idUSKBN0TV07720151212). Dies sei nur erwähnt, um auf das verzerrte Bild aufmerksam zu machen, die nicht-aktuellen Quellen erschaffen.

To travel the Silk Road, the greatest land route on earth, is to trace the passage not only of trade and armies but also of ideas, religions, and inventions. Making his way by local bus, truck, car, donkey cart, and camel, Colin Thubron covered some seven thousand miles in eight months—out of the heart of China into the mountains of Central Asia, across northern Afghanistan and the plains of Iran into Kurdish Turkey—and explored an ancient world in modern ferment.
