Here are a few shots on my way to school for the final 'dumping' of assets - cell phone and laptop. And on to the airport.
The guesthouse and the the magnificant roses. And the guard shack.
Sometimes it was hard to tell if a building was coming down or going up.
Street sweeping - a hopeless task in dusty Kabul.
A burka-clad woman searching.
Here's a modern young lady with new hat. Her brother looks on - aghast.
Here's the wondrous horse (and cart) that met us most days as we pulled into school. We all knew the horse hated the outfit. He was a stalwart soul.
Two of the security staff cleaning a rug - supposedly. They spray it with water and then 'barefoot' it to get the dirt loose and then spray again. Looked like fun.

Following in the footsteps of dad?
What will the boys be told?
Article 22 of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan:
"Any kind of discrimination and distinction between citizens of Afghanistan shall be forbidden. The citizens of Afghanistan, man and woman, have equal rights and duties before the law."

The ceremony has been cancelled. Security concerns - again. Ambassador Eikenberry was scheduled to speak. The road outside the University is torn up and traffic would have been impossible. Whatever.
The one graduate and his family will be invited to a celebratory dinner at a hotel here in town.
I wish him well and congratulate him on his perseverance.
Not much else I can say.
