February 20 2015

Locals working a convoy still wear traditional Afghan clothing. To me it is nothing more than layers of sheets swadled about their heads and bodies.I have no idea how a single layer of thin cotton keeps a person warm, perhaps just a testament to how tough these folks are. Footwear is unbelievably light for these conditions. Gortex and microfiber have apparently not made their way into the market, as a rule, western wear is generally shunned.
