Here’s another gratuitous shot of an amusing sight I saw during my ride to work just to make my non-KAF readers envious of my spectacular working environment. What are a few rocket attacks, dust storms, DFAC food and disgusting bathrooms when you get to see shit like this? Ok, all those things still suck but ya gotta admit this is a pretty cool photo, particularly when one considers that I was down shifting as I took it. Anyway, I spent much of the last few days being bemused.
Update: The Kabul Bank was once again closed at 3:20 pm today despite rumours that it had been open sometime yesterday and the somewhat misleading “Bank is Now Open” sign. I hate them.
The More Things Change…
I Prefer the Taste of Blue
So, we’re at Independence Hall last night and I just have to take a picture of the sign on the drink dispenser. The DFAC guy refilling a couple of the other containers looks at me quizzically as I aim the IPod. I smile and remark, “I love the sign but I’m not really sure what red tastes like” . “It’s mixed flavour, sir” he responds in all seriousness. I shoulda expected that.
I started with an amusing picture so I’ll end with a bemusing one.
