Spring is a really beautiful season here, warm days, cool nights, snowcaps in the distance.
Accordingly - we decided to go for a stroll around the neighborhood. Luckily, my work provided the excuse, which was a visit to a USAID funded teacher training center, which just happens to be on the property adjacent to our compound.
It was great to see money going to a solid project that is coming together literally on my doorstep, with no meaningful guidance or involvement from me - as our Afghan contractors are doing a great job, and are overseen by Afghan employees at the Embassy, who check in on it without the need for MRAPs and body armor and all that jazz.
Of course, it can be fun to take field trips, despite the excessive chaperoning by a dozen odd armed guards, but that's the next post.
