TO GO WITH Afghanistan-unrest-NATO-Bamyan,FEATURE by Lawrence Bartlett Band-e Amir lake is pictured on the outskirts of Bamiyan city on October 23, 2012. In a spectacular valley swept by centuries of Silk Road history, the hopes and fears of Afghanistan's only female governor capture the mood across the country as Western troops prepare to withdraw. Habiba Sarobi's hope springs from the transformation of Bamyan province from a place of massacres and oppression of women under Taliban Islamists to one where most people live in peace and young girls flock to school. It is fuelled by a belief that the historical, cultural and physical beauty of the central province could become a magnet for international tourists whose dollars would help support those gains.AFP PHOTO / Massoud HOSSAINI (Photo credit should read MASSOUD HOSSAINI/AFP/Getty Images)
