Yep, its an interesting and beautiful place. We are well up into the mountains in eastern Afghanistan, just a few clicks from the border with Pakistan. I feel for the poeple as it is clear that as a whole they are not sure in whos basket to place their eggs. The threat of retalitaion from the Taliban prevents many from getting involved on our side. The Afghan National Army soldiers sometimes come out on missions with us and "take the high ground" or otherwise provide security for us while we do our "route clearance/counter IED missions". Its been an interesting 10 months, one I will not soon forget. Thanx for your kind words samantha.
