Karakoram Highway, Pakistan
Naigiblhha is an economic refugee from Afghanistan. He crosses the border from his home in Kabul once a year to work with a road crew on the Karakoram Highway in Pakistan. His wage of $1.25 a day is a relative fortune in Afghanistan. The Karakoram Highway was built along the caravan routes of the old Silk Road used by Chinese pilgrims over one thousand years ago. The construction, a joint venture between China and Pakistan, lasted from 1966 to1982 and cost one life for every kilometer of highway completed.
