A Week in Afghanistan

Steven Ross of CSIS’s Post Conflict Reconstruction project writes his impressions of a week-long visit to Afghanistan: he is surprised -and no doubt grateful- for the feeling of safety, sees a “thriving” Kabul, and find road conditions “horrendous.”
I have thought long and hard about this last one and can only attribute the potholes to the lesser spring offensive that is the advent of mud on unpaved streets of Kabul after the thaw.

There are also some nice pictures from Steve’s visit posted over at PCR Blog in the form of an easily navigable photo essay.

Been there, bought naan at that bakery!
