No matter where I travel, one thing is for certain - a smile is universal. I may not be able to speak certain languages, or have the time to chat about the weather, but I have found that something as simple as a smile can convey a vast amount of information and meaning about a person, place or a situation.
Many of my coworkers thought that I may have been in the sun too long when I explained how much I loved Afghanistan. I do; I truly love Afghanistan. I may not like the politics

Due to weight and baggage restrictions (thanks Delta), I didn't bring any of my gear with me. But I'll be heading back
