Leon Chew, Inside the Kabul Museum, 2011

I had a chance to meet with Laura Tedesco when I was reporting on Mes Aynak for the Wall Street Journal. For several years, she was based in Afghanistan working as the manager of the US Embassy’s Afghan cultural heritage program.

Of her many programs, she is overseeing the reconstruction of the National Museum of Afghanistan in Kabul (one of my favorite places I visited when in the country). Her work in Afghanistan is truly momentous. Read the piece I wrote for Departures below.
