Part 2 of 3

I spent a day in Herat, interviewing entrepreneurs in this city located in the far northwestern corner of Afghanistan about an hour’s south of the Iranian border. That afternoon, we took a driving tour of the city and the security situation was stable enough to warrant a visit to the Citadel of Alexander, or the Qala Iktyaruddin, which dates back to 330 B.C. Sadly, the famed Herati vineyards don’t produce wine anymore.
