If you are someone who reads this blog out of a general interest in Afghanistan or the Foreign Service or what have you, you may have seen pictures like this elsewhere of late. After weeks or months of thick, gross, sooty air caused by millions of Kabul residents burning various plastics and worse to stay warm, we got some rain and snow and wintry mix. Once the storm passed, it had washed most of the all-too-literal crap out of the air, resulting in beautiful views of the mountains all around. So the Embassy, in a fit of generosity, allowed everyone to go up on the roof to take pictures, and virtually everyone did. So, if you know anyone else at Embassy Kabul, you've probably already seen a nice picture of the pretty mountains around the city. Sorry we're so slow!
