What country lies beyond the river? Inhabitants of Afghan’s villages see the “foreign land” across the river. They see cars passing without ever knowing how it feels to ride in a car. They look at grand houses, while they live in shanty huts made of stones and mud. They look at girls clad in jeans laughing, while their women are illiterate and home bound. The foreign land seems so beautiful, but it’s only a fantasy. A three dimensional fantasy living in their dreams. The fantasy of people across the borders. The same fantasy takes Agustinus Wibowo to travel to mysterious countries in Central Asia. Tajikistan. Kyrgyzstan. Kazakhstan. Uzbekistan. Turkmenistan. His journey in these lands take you up the snowy mountain, across the meadow, soaking in traditions and civilization along the silk road, and feeling the nostalgia of communism symbols in the Soviet Union. It also reveals men’s destiny separated by boundaries.1
