Yes, it's true. Over the weekend I discovered that this blog is the 3rd most popular website in Afghanistan. All weekend long I kept trying to think of why anyone in Afghanistan would read this blog and this is what I think are some possible explanations.
1. The most likely explanation is there is only one computer in all of Afghanistan and the person who owns it can't figure out how to remove me from their homepage.
2. It could be that military personnel there are in love with my witty repartee. I know, I know. That's why I keep coming back to number 1.
3. The Kim Kardashian video is popular viewing in the caves.
4. Al Qaeda is using the comments section of the blog to communicate with each other. This would explain so many things don't you think? It's not really nastiness, it's just code.
Whatever the reason, I would like to know who from Afghanistan is reading the blog because I'm really curious. So, if you are in Afghanistan, send me an e-mail and let me know why you are reading the blog and who you are. If you're in the military, thanks for all you do and let me know if you want ZX to come visit. I'm too old and heavy, but she loves an adventure and am sure she would love to.
