Trying to stay in shape this summer, my neighbor friend and I meet two to three mornings a week to exercise. Since my friend has two little girls, we exercise at her house. Since we exercise in the early morning, I usually go over the wall to save time and not wake anyone else up. The video we use says we should be shredding off pounds. I guess we will see.
On Monday of this week, Winter, some friends and I went to the Delaram salon which is run by Afghan ladies who are deaf. I received a much needed hair cut and my first ever facial. Winter and her friends decided to go for the henna tattoos. Notice each design is different. It was a fun morning outing.
On Tuesday Winter’s friends came over and put some finishing touches on their visa applications. They also had a good time trying on Afghan outfits and dancing.
Today Noel and I went to a bazaar with our chaikidor to get some fabric. On outings such as this, I usually wear a long coat as well my scarf hoping to blend in a bit more. These outings always give us an opportunity to see a different part of Kabul. Today we were lucky to find the fabric we needed.
Lastly a post is not complete without a picture of David. David has been enjoying swimming in the pool next door this summer. He even helped get it all cleaned out for a birthday party they were having today.
Hope you are all having a good summer. T

Looks like everyone (except Noel) is having a new or fun adventure this summer. Glad your summer is going well. We miss everyone. Give all our love,
Thanks for sharing the very fun pictures! I don’t think I have ever seen the henna tattoos on the palms. Are they some times done on the backs of hands/fingers?
Love and miss you guys!
