Afghanistan truckers use their vehicles as a canvas for poetry
It’s not uncommon to see lavishly painted and decorated trucks while traveling the sandy roads of Afghanistan — but beyond the visual delights, there are often subtle literary messages to be discovered, as well. It’s common to see quick lines of poetry on the sides or backs of trucks; based on his time driving through the country, Borhan Osman discovered an unique mix of heartfelt messages mixed with a bit of humor by mixing in driving-related phrases alongside a declaration of love.
