Our Life in Photos

Wow!  We were busy last week, and the week before and the week before.  Basically, life in Kabul is busy!  We've said lots of goodbyes to lots of close friends who were departing Kabul for the summer, furlough, or forever.  We've both been busy at work.  We had a Cinco de Mayo Party with our Afghan staff!  Really, we are just trucking right along.  Here are some photo highlights of our last few weeks:

The Maintenance guys who came to help out.  Always nice to see a familiar face in Kabul

From our trip to Dubai.  Do you see the camels on the beach?

From Last Import
The Walk in Dubai.  Joey's all about the candid photo, so none of us are looking in any of these.

From Last Import
Our good friends were in Dubai with us on their way back to the states for a year.  We miss them so much!

From Last Import
Looking for a Starbucks and a Cinnabon.  Dubai has everything!

From Last Import
Our Swiss Friends an fondue night.  That's our living room.

We went to a carnival that day, hence all the face paint.  Oh, and we're moving in with these hooligans in July!


From Last Import
Cinco de Mayo! That's the kids table (or dest-e-khan).

From Last Import
Everyone loved Joey's mexican food.  Ali couldn't believe there was no oil in it.  He said, "How can it taste so good without oil?"

From Last Import
Habib and his kids.

From Last Import
Rafi and his kids.  Horace is too cute and has the best handshake and little raspy voice when he says, "Salaam!"

From Last Import
Tea and campfire.

And that's some of our goings on!  We keep busy and have lots of fun hanging out with all our Afghan and Expat friends.  And it's sunny and beautiful right now.  Kabul's pretty great!
