As I was digressing from the intent of the other thread, I thought I would start a new one to post any new developments or updates more specifically about my year in Kabul. Not a diary, but a place I can post questions about a larger range of topics. For instance, we discussed air quality and fires resulting in deaths. At this very moment I am sitting in my office finding it difficult to breath just from the amount of wood smoke that encompasses the area. It is easier to breath in my office than it is outside and I have disconnected the fire alarms in the room because I got tired of them going off. As for the refugees, the government is making a move to get people off the streets and out from under the bridges. The Health Ministry is working on this and using a recently acquired military compound. They requested the area for its existing barracks to house and conduct rehab for the thousands of heroin addicts that comprise the refugee population.
