 ON THE COVER  DEPARTMENTS
cover ON THE COVER: The Band-i-Haibat is one of the largest self-damming lakes of Band-i-Amir (Dam of the King) and sits in the Hazarajat area of central Afghanistan. The Hazara people believe that Mohammedís son-in-law, Caliph ĎAli, built the eight tufa dams and lakes of Band-i-Amir for drought relief. This lake is located near the Bamiyan Buddhas that the Taliban destroyed last March. Photo provided courtesy of Jack Shroder, University of Nebraska.
