My Thoughts…Not Yours

Smoking Cubans on the Reg

So…its the end of week 2 in Afghanistan…initial reports are positive, billeting is good, food is edible and porcelain is not hard to find. The drawbacks are obvious although the monetary compensation is comforting at times. The crazy thing is that NATO has a countless amount of small countries involved in this operation so you’re constantly running into Soldiers, Marines and Airmen from around the world. Strangely enough the American Navy has a strong presence here as well. Another plus is that your tobacco habits don’t cut into your wallet…$1.50 for a pack of name brand cigs if you smoke… $7.50 for a log of skoal or cope and cubans are in abundance. I would like to purchase a portable humador….although getting my hands on one may prove to be difficult.  Anyways…all is good on the eastern front and I imagine if you have to be in Afghanistan you’d want to be in KAF.

  4. Reading through old posts…after living there for a year and visiting a ridiculous number of FOBs throughout the Regional Command South and Kabul, it turns out that KAF sucked pretty bad. Although it’s nice to see I was optimistic about the whole thing.
