Thanks for the informative post. I must however say that what you mentioned is typical of all Afghan(istani)s. Not, just Pashtuns. Tajiks (Persian speakers of Afghanistan) are also so. I have met Afghan people of different ethnic groups and they all do their best to abide by the code you mentioned (one especially hears much about «ghayrat»). So, I would call it an Afghan(istani) culture, rather than exclusively Pashtun.

I'll be moving to Afghanistan to study Pashto full time in September, so hopefully I'll be able to be of more help to any fellow learners here very soon.
