I had to pick up Mr. Atefi which proved a little more challenging in the dark. He lives near the airport and we found him and headed for the security gauntlet that is part of flying in Afghanistan. We were now bound for Mazar I Sharif. The flight was great on a Pamir Air Boeing 737 and the plane conveniently dropped us off right at baggage claim, which was basically outside next to the plane. There is a long walk through and past several security stations and checkpoints to where we found our car. We went to the unnamed Guesthouse which is trying hard. It has a doorman both outside and inside the door, both armed. There I met Patty who is teaching ESL to the Law Faculty who managed my schedule for Mazar.
