Hajdar can't believe his luck. His mother has agreed to let him go
with his friend into the city. Hajdar has heard stories about life
in Kabul and can't wait to see it. His friend Saber has been to Kabul
many times to visit his uncle so Hajdar wasn't afraid of getting lost in
the big city. He knew it would be quite different from the small
village they called home. The boys loaded up with raisins and flowers
to sell in the market and set off on a bus to Kabul. The city was
so confusing to Hajdar but he was enjoying it and learning his way around
the market. There was no way for the boys to know just how much their
lives were about to change.
