he devastation in Kabul took Amir's breath away. The buildings and streets had turned into rubble, and fatherless children begged on every street corner. When a red truck full of Talibs drove by, Amir was mesmerized by them for a minute. Farid warned him never to stand at the Talibs again, because they welcomed any chance to start a conflict. I think Farid feels a little badly for Amir now. He knows the backstory for Amir's visit and knows that Amir is taking an awful risk returning.
