Made it!!!!

It was a brisk 9368 miles (15075 Km) trip, but I am finally here. It's cold in Kabul, maybe high 30's or low 40's, but no snow on the ground although you can see it up in the surrounding mountains. Immigration was a breeze, they didn't speak English and they saw my visa so just waived me through. I was promptly met by Omaidi, one of the athletes and employee of the Afghan Swim Federation. He was cheerful and genuinely happy I had arrived. As we drove to the hotel I was surprised by the traffic, which is a major issue now in Kabul. Also by the darkness, which makes sense seeing how there really isn't any electricity, unless you are rich and own a generator. Omaidi's SUV is equipped with a siren that he didn't hesitate to use, I got a kick out of that. We ate dinner together at the hotel and were later joined by the Afghan Swimming Federation delegation. We meet and chatted, but decided to save the business for tomorrow and I called it a night.
