Today the weather changed drastically from mid day to evening. It went from beautiful and sunny to cloudy skys and heavy snow fall.
Muslims will be celebrating another holiday this weekend. It is called Day of Ashura. I linked a Wikapedia article in case you were interested in learning more information. This last week you could detect a noticeable change around the city. Cars had large flags on them and a lot of banners were erected.
I do not normally do this because I try and stick to Afghan related topics, but I found an ABC News story so funny that I had to share it. The title of the article is, "More Sick From Toxic Pig Brain Mist." Here is a link. The comments on the article are also pretty funny. I can say with confidence that toxic pig brain mist will never be a problem in Afghanistan because Muslims are not allowed to consume pork. As a matter of fact, we make sure that we do not give out any stuffed toy pigs to any of the children. We try and respect and be sensitive towards their religious and cultural beliefs.
Thanks for reading.
