Today we had a farewell party for one of our local national engineers. He found a higher paying job in Kabul and we are very proud of him. He's been with the PRT for a year and a half and has done a great job. Unfortunately, the PRT does not pay enough money compared to some of the NGOs, so our engineers often leave for a better pay check. We had a very nice luncheon and I wore a kuchi dress--a typical pattern for the nomadic people in Afghanistan.


  1. The second picture is awesome! Glad you're doing well and I love reading your stories. Thanks for your service!

  2. Dear Jenna,
    You look very pretty in traditional dress, esp when accsesorised with such impressive hardwear.
    The colors could be part of a Polish costume.
    Keep posting, we wonder when we don't hear from you for awhile. LOVE A.Kathy
