Half way point

The 4th of June marked the halfway point in my assignment to Afghanistan. I feel like I should say something profound, so I'll quote Confucius:

If you want to plan ahead for one year, plant rice;
if you want to plan ahead for ten years, plant trees;
if you want to plan ahead for 100 year, educate the children.

Thanks to everyone who has provided support through the marvelous means of electronic communications; your messages and jokes and facebook comments are real day brightners!

Nothing escapes the Afghans' desire to "jingle" - including their tractors. Altho its hard to see, here's a picture of one that has been decorated with fringes, wrappings, etc.
