At Kunduz

I arrived here last night. Cold, damp, rainy, muddy. Typical Afghanistan winter. I got to the transient tent, and crawled in the rack. Unhappily, I left my heavy duty plastic shower shoes in Mazer Al Sharif. No matter, I will get a new set. shower shoes are a necessity in this place, you have to walk 75 yards over gravel to take a shower.

The base is typical for a mid-size base in Afghanistan. There are Germans here, and I get to speak German.

The dining hall is adequate, again, about average for Afghanistan. I had a decent breakfast. I had roast beef for lunch, with a grilled polish sausage.

Looking forward to a decent assignment.
