This 'Boy' I Met in Afghanistan Has a Secret

When you travel, sometimes it's not so much about the place you travel to but the people you meet. And sometimes the people you meet can be a little... out there.

When I went to Afghanistan in February for the Afghan Ski Challenge, I was the "out there" one for my friends. But I have never met a woman like Candace Lau, a 28-year-old Chinese-Australian photographer who took a year off work to travel on the cheap through India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran.
