Getting back all the way Blog
When we finally were allowed to enter the Ariana plane in Kabul, we were already one hour late. By the time we left, an F-16 fighter having littered the runway, which needed to be cleaned up, we were over two hours late.
I finally picked up my luggage at Istanbul airport, a bit after three pm. My plane had left at 1:30pm where, supposedly, I was going to have about two hours between flights.
Going over to the Turkish airlines ticket offices, I asked which was the next available flight they could book me on. 23rd of August.
I bought a last minute ticket, the last seat, on an Onur Air flight and left.
I'm happy my project in Afghanistan is over. I really consider the project finished, it was time to move on, although DACAAR would now strongly benefit from a guy like me working with them one or two days per week.
On the other hand, I really enjoyed myself in Kabul, the city starting to feel like home. It's a nice place, people are friendly and although the social calendar is rather short, there's always something to do.
Until next time.
