I’m currently in Afghanistan, and on my way to Ghazni again, but wanted to post some more pictures from my embed in May. I wrote about the time I spent with the American 2-2 infantry here. Here are some pictures from one of the patrols.
The moment I remember most — right before we ran across the field to take cover under the far wall:
Climbed up on the roof and this was the view:
Looking down from roof – women and children huddling in the corner:
They told us they were just pipes – no plumbing within dozens of miles though.
Poo pancakes the kids put together and once dried, used as fuel.
Rest of the pictures are here.
