The view from the back

The elections are close at hand in Afghanistan so everyone is a little tense and dreading a potential increase in violence. Ramadan will start after that. For these reasons I have been out recently a few times to meet, mentor and interact with ANP medical personnel. Luckily I have been able to get out and do what I was sent to do. Now I just need to get better seating. Sightseeing is limited while strapped in a passenger seat in an MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protection) vehicle. The MRAPs are large, noisy, slow- but they do have excellent Airconditioning and are the safest way to travel by road in Afghanistan. Per guidance from leadership, no photos of an MRAP, sorry.
