Earthquake!

Bagram Air Field, Afghanistan --  I was about to write a post about my thoughts on Matthew Hoh’s resignation ... But then ... EARTHQUAKE!
Bagram Air Field, Afghanistan —
I was about to write a post about my thoughts on Matthew Hoh’s resignation … But then … EARTHQUAKE!

You may have heard that a U.S. foreign service officer in Afghanistan quit his job in protest of America’s policies here in the ‘stan.

For tonight’s post, I was beginning to type my thoughts about his four-page letter, but then I felt my hut moving … It was kind of swaying, back-n-forth.

For a second, I had to shake my head for a minute … You know, like I was just dazed for a minute and needed to shake it off.

But after a couple of seconds, I realized we were experiencing an earthquake.

I was sitting in my underwear at the time, so I scrambled to put on some clothes. (I didn’t want to die in my undies!)

It wasn’t that bad, but it certainly caught us by surpise.

Earthquakes … Just another peculiarity of the ‘stan.

(I’ll write about Hoh later.)
