Cool this morning. Went to breakfast, first time in weeks. Had some eggs, first time in weeks. I am going up to Jalalabad soon, on a training mission. I went to J-bad back in 2004, it was bleak. The place has probably grown, and it is bit more modern now.

I still have trouble sleeping, the tent is too near the flight line. Last night, the mechanics were doing "Static tests" on aircraft engines. That is where they place an engine on stilts, and run up the motor, to see how it runs. It is LOUD, about 140Db.

I like Afghanistan less and less. But it is better to be working here, than unemployed back home.
