Love in the Time of Burqas

While the gleefulness with which this story celebrates this flaunting of Islamic law and acceptance of Western norms is a little unsettling, this article, Young lovers in burqas flaunt Afghanistan's rules of attraction, is still an interesting take on modernization in the Islamid world. The image of girls setting up dates in sacred gardens and men trolling the hospital to find educated women is sweet. Remains me a bit of Dartmouth actually...using blitz to set up food court dates and wandering around first floor berry may be the Hanover equivalents.
