We landed safely in Doha, Qatar yesterday evening; I’m staying on Camp As Saliyah right now. It’s hotter than hell, but good. We’ll fly out to Afghanistan in a few days, but until then we’re here on a rest and recuperation base, with three beers a day and some damn fine food.
I have pictures- including some of my first toe- up sock, started on the 14 hour flight over- but I’m using a common area computer right now, not my personal laptop, so those will have to wait.
We’re partway there, at least, and safe, and still not fully convinced that this is all real. I thought this might sink in on the flight over, but it’s all still surreal.
Be well. I’ll update when I can- definitely when we get into Afghanistan, at the least.
