Settling in...

"Settling" in Afghanistan is a two-way process.

On the one hand, I am in a good routine of chatting to friends of an evening, and doing a little coursework, and relaxing during the sparse hours I have free. I am settling in that I've bought speakers for the laptop, got my own pillow cases onto my pillow, and am settling into a routine.

But as I said its a two-way process... the dust and sandy atmosphere is settling in to everything... I am getting accustomed to floors, surfaces, objects and everything being constantly covered in a constant film of desert and dryness... whereas at first I wanted to constantly wash my hands and face... now the desert is settling into me!

But the days are getting hotter... 40degrees celsius today at 1pm... and with that we wear body armour, jacket, helmet (when driving from one work premises to another), boots, etc.

I'm quite liking it out here :-)

Thanks to Shuri and Gail, and Opto! for the conversation, it's a real morale boost. I got some good friends :-)

Ah, thanks for the sweet thoughts, kittie!

If you email me on vexen@vexen.co.uk, I'll give you my address!

Glad to hear your settling in.

Was going to enquire last night, but went to the pub with Meg and Giles. So have you got the others dancing to Tanzwut yet?


I don't have any Tanzwut tracks with me, I burnt a load of MP3 CDs to come out here with, and that only meant a limited choice.

I've compromised and brought much of the futurepop/poppy techno-industrial so that it is a little easier for them to get into stuff... small steps at a time, with this lot!

Take care mate, you do have our (German) phone number so you can phone Sam? If not email me on vexen@vexen.co.uk and I'll send you it.

Hunny, you were there when Ian called us as home.

Oh yeah I remember, I talked to him :-)

I do have your German phone number.

Anyway bed calls, so take care and catch you some other time...

I was on the internet, and somehow stumbled on website advocating Satanism and satanistic appeals.(which of course, linked to you). oddly, the ideas it supports drew my attention , and I'm very eager to find out more information about it. I'm not a religious person, so to speak, there is no God I shackle myself to, therefore you may offer your perspective without concerning yourself about offending me on such topics. Thank you for your time, and I hope you respond to my request in due time. Roxyplayer694@msn.com


So is there anything you'd like sent from home, other than a hoover? :)
