A young man's strange, erotic journey from Milan to Minsk...and apparently, back again.

Patyka Mountains from Above





It was hard to choose just a few photos from the dozens that I took from the helicopter on my flight to Khost. The mountains got more and more dramatic as we climbed through some passes, and seem to taunt those who would invade. It's easy to see how one force after another over the years has attempted to impose law and order on a region like this, and failed miserably. I'm glad we're here working with the Afghan people and goverment, rather than trying to rule them. And I've yet to find a helo crew who will accomodate some heli-skiing requests, but I'll keep trying.

You freezing your tale off reminds me of the wonderful days and nights in Norway - let me know if you find any cheesy techno bars playing Cher like in Norway!!! Unfortunately though you don't have "Big Worm" with you to drink!!!

Virginia Gentlemen HAD to mention Norway and Cher....Now I'll be hearing this in my head all day.

I can feel something inside me say I really don't think your strong enough no..."

hey! virginia gentlemen (?) and raf need to be careful expressing negative statements (though true, unfortunately)about norwegian clubbing, as there are norwegians visiting this blog as well.

great pictures, by the way!
