500th Post! A little slice of life in the A-stan.

Indeed. It is true. This is our 500th post. And I think a good way of celebrating the “half-millenia” mark is to show a little of what life can be like for some of the troops in Afghanistan.

  1. There are so many individual parts of that video that I would like to know more about. For example, the cave scene. Also, the gathering that looks like a tribal meeting.

    Congratulations on your 500th post, xbrad.

    p.s. I love Theo’s site. It’s one of those I go to every day.

  2. I can’t really say why, but the video was pretty moving to me. I really like the contrast between the stark serene beauty of Afghanistan and the rough hewn life of soldiering. There’s something very peaceful looking about those mountains, and yet we know the bad people are hiding there. Afghans are famed for their hospitality, and yet equally famous for their enmity. A land of contrasts, to say the least.
