Da Plane, Boss, Da Plane!
(Did you know that guy from Fantasy Island, the little one, was Afghan?)
This morning, I received all of my tickets…no contract, but I have my tickets.
So, I’m leaving for Kabul in nine days, Inshallah. Even though I’ve been there twice already, I am nervous. A friend asked if I was worried about my safety, because of the recent riots. I'm not. I'll do my best to be safe and not attract attention, but Inshallah, I'll be okay.
The most pressing concern right now is the make sure I have the proper clothing. It's hard finding culturally appropriate clothing and this time, I want to make sure that I dress nicely. It makes me feel better and less frumpy. Besides, my mom asked me to make sure to wear make-up every day. "Nobody likes to look at a washed-out face."
But when there is no water, perhaps a washed-out face isn't so bad?
She's right though, I like to be around people are put-together. So, wish me luck! Do you think they would do an episode of 'What not to Wear' in Kabul?
I think I will go shopping today. Being at home, surrounded by boxes and papers, is slightly overwhelming.
