The nightmare, the dream, and the reality

Life in Kabul often has a surreal quality that is partly related to the nightmare of what has been and may be again, the reality of what is, and the dreams and desires for what might be. Sometimes you find a summary of the situation in the oddest places. This billboard near one of the grocery stores where we shop captures that disconnect well. Whether armored vehicles (referenced on the left half of the billboard) are necessary is up for debate but luxury sports cars (pictured on the right half of the billboard) are clearly not reasonable given the horrible state of the roads here.
