Kabul Some More

One prominent feature visible from the Embassy: High on a ridge above the city, a high-dive platform, built during Soviet times when I guess the Russians decided they would demonstrate their dominance by forcing their new subjects to win Olympic gold in diving.

(Sadly, The Lovely Katherine had our DSLR camera in Herat on Embassy Rooftop Photo Day, so your correspondent was stuck using the zoom on the pocket point-n-shoot. Oh, well.)
