Helicopter ride to Nangarhar Governor Compound
The second day of the ag conference moved to the governor's compound here in Jalalabad. In order to get there, even tho it is just across town, we boarded two helicopters and helo'd (please don't check your dictionary for this verb) over instead of driving. Note the open hatch in the back; a precarious perch for the gunner tethered here! We landed on a soccer field and, after we dismounted, the helo's departed for other missions.
