January 4, 1400

This is the new US embassy under construction in Kabul. Each floor about 80,000sq feet, this thing is massive. I can't imagine the square foot cost, it has to be astronomical. 1 billion dollars, not out of the question. Workers must be housed on the property, travel in this city is limited. The truck bombing of US contractors put a stop to most civilian access; there is little scheduled travel here, random movement is almost required for safety. Quite possibly the only two tower cranes for 400 miles. US workers with secret clearance only.
