Kabul in spring

Kabul has been fairly peaceful this spring, very calm; there really haven't been very many car bombings, certainly not the level the Taliban had promised/threatened. Kind of nice, really.

Now if it just wasn't so damn dusty...

Recently, I was fortunate...

...enough to have a chance to visit the Mike Spann Memorial in Fort Kala Jangi where he was killed outside of Mezar-E-Sharif (Mezar-I-Sharif). Unfortunately, I can't put all my photos here--no faces--but I can post a few.

Outside the inner perimeter.

Also outside the inner perimeter of the fort.

Inside the inner perimeter, the small monument stands among mine fields.

The monument.

Text of the monument.

Afghanistan is not Iraq; I hope we do not lose sight of that, there is still much to be done...
