Chitrali Polo

Chitral 1
I went to Chitral in September of 2008 and was overwhelmed by the beauty of the place and the intricacies of its people.  I’m planning on going again in a few weeks and I am really excited about it. I’m not sure if any of you came across the article below in the Guardian this past weekend but it’s about Chitral and Shandur Polo, which took place there in July.

In the middle of war, a game of polo breaks out in Pakistan –
