"Everyone agreed that my father, my Baba, had built the most beautiful house in the Wazir Akbar Khan district, a new and affluent neighborhood in the northern part of Kabul.  Some thought it was the prettiest house in all of Kabul."

The house had a large entryway with rosebushes on each side of the door.  It was a "sprawling house of marble floors and wide widows."  The floors were made of mosaic tiles, gold-stiched tapestries, a crystal chandelier hung from the vaulted ceiling.  It was a two story house which had a "smoking room." The living room had a curved wall and it also had custom built cabinets.  the house had a large diningroom and a large terrace.
