Yesterday I received my first letter in the mail from Aunt Margie! Thank you very much, I really enjoyed the picture and I will hang it in my office. I also appreciate all the comments on the blog. I'm glad people enjoy reading it and sharing my experiences. A lot of people have also been asking what they can send me in a care package. I am compiling a list and I will send it soon.
A couple days ago we attended a ribbon cutting for newly paved streets in Jalalabad. It was an interesting event, but the best part was talking to the little kids in Pashto. A little goes a long way and I'm excited to learn more. The only thing about little kids in Afghanistan is that they all want attention and if you're talking to one or two kids the next thing you know you are surrounded!
