I knew it. Patients started to pour in today, the third day of Eid.  I was desperately trying to maintain a smile on my face while running around and getting back into the flow of the typical busy Khost day.

Eid Mubarak

I arrived back here in Khost two days ago and have been busy making my way around the maternity saying ‘as-salamu alaykum’ to all the familiar faces.

Just my luck. Despite coming from a fairly hot and humid Asian city I do not handle heat well.  The weather here is stiflingly hot in the summer but the basement of the guesthouse was cool enough for me to sleep soundly through the night.

I’m back!

A three-months break and I’m back in Afghanistan! I landed with good sunny weather, early in the morning when the heat had not yet set in.
