Considerations and confidence

Suicide bombing alerts in Islamabad have been heightened. We are tightening up our security protocols. I now have to tell my TL where I am at all times, rotate my hang outs, avoid getting out of a taxi in front of the house, and keep a phone on me at all times. Paranoia is coming at us in style.

There is still something positive. My friend found the guide to Islamabad's restaurants. It's heartening.

Our entry into Afghanistan for the whole 6 weeks was approved this morning. I am still waiting to see what is going to happen with the rest - whether my transfer to the Middle East is happening or not. (More to come about that soon.)

I guess it will be nothing compared to Kabul - it looks like Kabul will be the highest risk zone I'll ever go in of all my life. I'm not afraid, though. Something in me tells me it is my duty to go, and all will be fine. I am confident of it.

PLEASE be so very careful, hon. Don't take risks or do anything noble. Leave that to someone else.
