Peshawar, capital city of pakistani northwestern province is located near the afghan border and shares the same pashto population with this country. Peshawar has a very strong personality and stressful atmosphere. The old city's architecture is very beautiful and it is a pleasure to get lost in its small streets. Peshawar is definitely a city for men, and the few women on the streets bear a strict burka. South to Peshawar is the village of Dara Adam Khel, in the tribal areas, out of governmental control. This village is famous for being the biggest regional center for weapon manufacturing and sale, since the beginning of the Afghanistan war.
