I am in Istanbul not Kabul

17 08 2009

Perhaps it is prosaic that the first morning I wake up in Istanbul, the Nato/ISAF base in Kabul is under attack from a suicide bomb, the biggest attack in 6 months. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/8202758.stm

I am alive and well and currently enjoying a more relaxed islamic environment.

Until I have more news have a look at http://trueslant.com/pjtobia/ I met PJ between vodka and limes on Thursday night at an embassy party.
