As a video journalist from Pittsburgh, I found a compelling story in how an Afghan Market has successfully become the anchor for a multi-faceted immigrant community in Alexandria, Virginia by bringing them a strong taste of home.The making of kalapacha, a traditional lamb's head soup from Afghanistan and border regions, becomes one way to win hearts on a cold December afternoon.

Grateful thanks to Bill Gentile, Bruce Jones and the Backpack Video Journalism Team.
