The peripheries of the city of Kabul, especially to the north and east are endless building sites. Since most of the documentation concerning land title was lost during the war, much of this speculative and illegal construction is concerned more with establishing undisputable ‘facts of the ground’ which can be argued over later. Apartments and shops are, almost exclusively, unoccupied.
