It Begins

It Begins

Days ago, I arrived in a country I never expected to visit. A land of deserts, mountains, ancient traditions and hardy people. A place of struggle, transition and hope for a better future. For the next year, Afghanistan will be my home away from home.

Several years ago, I began working diligently to prepare for a new career teaching English abroad. I trained, studied and gained teaching experience. Finally, the time had arrived to throw my hat into the international ring.

So here I am on a one-year contract to teach English to members of the Afghan National Army. During this time, I will live and work on the coalition base at Kabul International Airport. Although my exposure to Afghanistan will be significantly limited during my stay, I am anxious to discover everything I can about this land and its people.
