Daytrip to Parwan

Last week I took a day trip to Parwan Province, which is just N/NE of Kabul, to visit the detention facility. We took an MI-8 there (it's the red, white, and blue one). No pictures of the facility, of course.

Looking out over the city of Kabul:

It's a quick trip of less than thirty minutes. Just outside the city, we saw tents of nomadic people with their flocks of sheep:

A dusty, deserted traffic circle, just over the mountains from Kabul:

It looks so green and peaceful from the air!

We took a different helicopter for the ride back. I have no idea what kind it was, but it was an old Russian model with a new paintjob.
