Happiness to scale

My current Amélian pleasures:
  • Children flying kites out along the streets
  • A burqa with a red sequined skirt underneath
  • My colleague whose fingernails always match her headscarf
  • The dust-free cool blown in after a recent rainstorm
  • Finding all three volumes of The Venture of Islam for sale in a Kabul bookstore

I liked your pictures of Herat and it sounds like you enjoyed your trip there.

How soon do you leave for Dubai?
