Sand Through My Toes

My big adventure in the sand

Finally, some down time!

I am still here sitting at Camp Eggers waiting for the other eight teachers to arrive that opted not to get on the flight the six of us did in the first place.  So, we have some down time. 🙂  We checked out the Tourist Info Office and well, we can go to MWR, play pool, drink coffee, use the gym, watch a movie…but for right now, no tours outside the wire!  🙂  Well, I opted to update my blog and actually respond to some posts.  It is difficult to read Fifty Shades on my iPad when the battery is at 0% so updating it will be!

We had to meet this morning at 8:00 with our boss and it was determined we would meet again after lunch to discuss the afternoon game plan and the whereabouts of the others. Hopefully they arrive tonight and we’ll begin our two days of training.  Once training is complete, we will hopefully receive our assignments.  At this time, nothing is in stone and it could change at a moments notice. 

I don’t have phone information just yet as I have to wait until I get to my permanent base to determine SIM card purchase, new phone and SIM card purchase, or just stick with skype!  Just kidding, I can’t wait to be able to call and text!  My thumbs are twitching to use the keypad. 

Enjoy your Thursday…

    I can’t believe how busy they are keeping you so I bet this down time must feel really great! I can’t wait to hear about where you’ll be teaching and I’m looking forward to seeing the pictures that you took of the streets in Kabul.

    Happy to hear you have a calm within the storm. You’ve inspired me to download 50 shades. Can you guarantee I won’t make disturbing noises on the plane?

    Wow Kelly! What an adventure you have had over the last few days. I too can’t wait to see the pictures. I just can’t imagine flying on a plane that huge. I would have been terrified! Looking forward to hearing about where you will be teaching. Miss you!

    Well if anyone can get out and roam the streets for some tourist time I’m sure it will be you. There is only so much coffee and table tennis you can play until down time gets the best of you. Looing forward to seeing where you land when assignments are passed out. Looking forward to the pics like everyone else. Do you mind if I send your posts around school for others to read of they have not had a chance to log in?
