Well, enough lounging about here in Herat. Assuming the weather cooperates I'm off to Ghor province tomorrow, back on Thursday.
I'm taking with me the supplies for the orphans - it is really cold up in Ghor and it is also one of the most neglected provinces in the country. Lengthy drought has devastated the economy and the harsh winters are long. People up there are really living it tough.
Nothing makes me feel lucky for everything in my life like a trip to Ghor. Just landing safely in the airstrip is enough to make me feel lucky, actually (did you notice the plane corpse lying just behind the airport welcome sign?).
Anyway, I'll miss visiting your blogs for laughter, beauty and warmth these next few days, but your comments are always very welcome. I can look forward to reading them when I get back!
