Hanging out, and it is quiet which is normal for a Sunday morning. It seemed like just the right time to catch you up on pictures.
Taken earlier this month when we had a bit of wind and some blowing dust
dust and dirt in the air - Bagram
looking out from the roof of the Korean Hospital
In front of the ROC Clamshell
dedication arch at the ROC Clamshell
Braydon Lines - Camp Bastion
Then – when traveling to Kabul –
waiting for a flight
and in the air –
Bagram -> Kabul 1
Bagram -> Kabul 2
and yes, that is dust – not clouds.
Bagram -> Kabul 3
Bagram -> Kabul 4
Bagram -> Kabul 5
Bagram -> Kabul 6 - there actually are some rivers
Bagram -> Kabul 7 - lovely colors in the rock
and someone has a sense of humor –
KAIA - Billeting area
Loved the photos, particularly the first & the first 2 from the air.
Wow. The air shots are amazing and number 0381 of the sleeping soldier is fantastic
What an amazing place. I get a sense centuries of horsemen, their heads and faces wrapped in cloth to protect them from the dust.
HOW do people survive here? Are there jobs that bring some food to the family or do the young men sit around smoking hash to pass the many hours of boredom before they decide it is better to sacrifice themselves and go to ‘Paradise’?
How do you feel when you see this sort of landscape? You are an amazing woman!
Thanks for the photos on Sunday. Looks like the high plateau of Colorado in some respects – but so dusty.
