In Afghanistan, I encountered a remote village, where all the villagers had light skin and eyes, many had blond or reddish hair. Turns out that the villagers were direct descendants of Alexander the Great's troops. This isn't a photo I took, it just reminds me of those villagers.
Walk in streets of a afghan bazaar and you will find almost 80% fair skin and blue, green, hazel eyes. Now (2015) many hazara people are back in kabul. People from other countries think that all Afghans are like hazara (descent from Genghis Khan) they are not from the afghan-bloodline. Only Pashtun/Pathan means Afghan!! and other tribes have migrated to be Called Afghan. AFGHANS are the only Aryan race that still have pure Aryan bloodline. They never marry outside their own tribes. It's part of the afghan tradition.
