Wednesday night is ladies night in Jalalabad. We wouldn't have it any other way. So the ladies of the PRT got out and mingled with the ladies of Afghanistan. Some of them spoke English, but since there was no translator with me I was stuck with my three phrases of Pashto and my camera. The children were very receptive, crowded around us and gave us flowers and food. It was very tiring and of course it was hot outside. The kids here are adorable but all of them are attention starved and the Americans are the show in town whenever we roll up.
