I haven’t written nearly as much as I expected. While in Kabul, I felt like one day was pretty much the same as the next and that there was not much interesting as I moved from the bubble that is the guest house to the bubble that is campus. I think that I also needed some distance and space to sort out the whirlwind of getting to and adjusting to my new life. I arrived back in the US for a break last week. When I return to Kabul in January, my plan is to try to post much more frequent short snippets and snapshots to capture my life there. In the meantime, I am off to soak up freedom, fresh foods, time with loved ones and to stock up on warmer clothes and other things to make life in Kabul more pleasant.
