On the ground in Afghanistan (Part 5)

Mike Skinner's account of his experiences in Afghanistan (intro here).

June 18 (excerpt):

... [On a stroll through Kabul:] a man greeted me in English and struck up a conversation. He told me he learned English in Pakistan where he was a refugee for fifteen years.

He has only recently returned to Kabul, but fears he may have made a mistake in coming here. He says he was astounded on his arrival by how little development the Western states have accomplished since the invasion of 2001. (Complete entry here.)
