Dubai: I arrived in Dubai at 10 pm at night and it took almost 2 hours to go through passport control and to the airport. The hotel (Le Meridien) was the nicest hotel I have ever been to in my life and the service was incredible. Their continental breakfast was everything I could ask for and more.
Trip home from Kabul airport: We got stopped on the road by two Afghan military men and they had to pat down the driver and search the car. They were both holding very large guns and I almost pooped my pants.
MSH in Afghanistan: The compound that we own is really really nice. It is almost as if you enter a new a world. There is grass and lots of flowers everywhere. The people are SO friendly and hospitable. We had tea and cookies to celebrate Eid (holiday after the end of Ramazan) and I ate in a separate room with the women. I wasn’t offended it was just so interesting!
Personal life: My daily routine is this - Work (7:00 am - 3:30 pm), come home, roll around in my room, dinner at 6, workout, shower, sleep. The guesthouse here is really nice and there is a little gym here too. I eat with my project director every night who is a 60 year old hobbit looking man. We’ve been bonding. I’m eating well, pooping well and have not gotten sick from anything yet!
