I'm currently in Afghanistan, and on my way to Ghazni again, but wanted to post some more pictures from my embed in May. I wrote about the time I spent with the American 2-2 infantry  here.  Here are some pictures from one of the patrols.

Sneaking up:

The moment I remember most — right before we ran across the field to take cover under the far wall:


Climbed up on the roof and this was the view:

Looking down from roof - women and children huddling in the corner:

They told us they were just pipes - no plumbing within dozens of miles though.

Poo pancakes the kids put together and once dried, used as fuel.

Rest of the pictures are here.
