Friday Kabul photoblogging: Oh, LOOK...! It's the SUN...!

friday is the one-day "weekend" here so i've got some time to take a few shots and some sun to help me along... it's been raining the past several days here in kabul so, today, when the sun finally decided to come out, it's a real treat and maybe it will dry up some of the omnipresent mud... the rain did manage to clear out some of the pollution, so you can actually see the mountains clearly... spring is still "springing," and the temps are cool, if not a little chilly... the nights have been down in the mid-40s (7C) and today, if we're lucky, it will get up to 60 (16C), as opposed to the low 50s (11C) of the past few days...

be sure to note the concertina barbed wire in the bottom two photos...
