Just visited a brand new swimming pool yesterday morning in Kabul.

The pool was just opened a week ago and according to the owner, it’s the largest swimming facility in Afghanistan. It has Jacuzzi, steam bath and a cafeteria and looked quite nice and clean.

The youngsters there, mostly college students, seemed pretty enthusiastic about swimming. I asked them why swimming and got quite interesting answers from the boys.

“It’s much cleaner and more hygienic than other sports”

“Swimming makes your body beautiful”

No matter what the reasons are, it’s great to see more young people engaging in different kinds of sports in this war-torn country.

Unfortunately, it’s for men only, at least for now. The trainer told me.

“It’s difficult to have both men and women in the facility like this because of the situation and culture of this country”
