January 4 1400

Traffic circle in Kabul at Jalabad road. Ten years ago there were fewer than 4000 cars, today there are approximately 400,000. I have never seen a traffic circle where traffic goes both directions but they do here (think about that for a second). Sidewalks and medians mean nothing, no drivers licenses required. Driving with Army support in an up-armored SUV is not for everyone, often both drivers and passengers are spent after a 20 minute drive. No desire to get out and mingle. 35 today, 8-12" snow forcast at 5000'.
