Portrait of a man sitting on the wall looking out over the Shomali Plains.

I’m sitting out on the roof top terrace of the guest house in Jalalabad, short sleeves, a beautiful spring afternoon looking up at the ‘White Mountain’, so called because it has a covering of snow even during the summer heat. Unusually the air is clear, the sky blue. The call to afternoon prayer is trying unsuccessfully to compete with the buzzing of tuck-tucks, and bicycle bells. A glass of Arniston Bay Shiraz in close attendance, wondering about the cold and snow forecast to hit Kabul by weeks end.
