She'll Work for Travel

Another cool woman I shared a room with during my stay in Kabul is Sharon Jumper. She's ex-Army, a military mom, attorney and professor - a true intellectual diva! Enjoy Sharon's travelblog.

Say "Hello" to Cordelia

The person for whom I probably "bonded" with the most from the journey is Cordelia. She's a really hip gal who lives in New York City. Besides being the "number one roomie," I admire her because she's fun, considerate and passionate for things she believes in. A few years ago, she took a year off from work to travel the world.

Tonight, her blog was born (although she's kept a travel site). Enjoy her blog as she continues to update it. Cordelia's Journeys.

Biking Burqa


These series of photos were taken on Friday, March 10, 2006 on our way to Istalif. When I showed my camera to them through the van window, they gave the thumbs up to take the photo. Then, the woman lifted her burqa. Maybe she only wears it to protect her from the bits flying at on while riding on the bike.

Anyway, I really like the free-spiritedness of this series. I'm disappointed my camera flash went off, which reflects the dust from the window and washes out the photo, but, I still think it's pretty cool.
