    That's like $25 American. Not too shabby.

    RT flight wasnt cheap at 3675. Add in the taxi to and from the outskirts of the village, plus the rental mule, I'm looking at close to 3960. I declined to opt for the "guide"...wouldve run me another 200 but enough's enough.

    The hotel isnt really a hotel as you and I know it. It's more of a dark hole in a mountain. Dirt cheap though. $24 a night.

    Guy on the walkie talkie tried to talk me into the "Protection Package." i guess they have a welcoming party there to greet you at the hotel and then they stay with you until the end of the trip. Told him "no" because I like to travel alone and don't really enjoy being on a schedule while on vacation.

    Guy told me it was -28 degrees yesterday. They on the celsius scale over there?

    You forgot to add the price of an AK-47 and ammo.

    I'm not expecting any violence on my trip. It will be a time for reflection.

    First rule of traveling: blend in with the locals.

    If you have a little extra time to get over to Pakistan, I heard this little b&b is quite nice.

    I'm hoping to grow a non-stache beard by the end of March.

    Ask them for a mirror so you can see the reflection of your own head being cut off with a rusty butter knife.

    Listen, now you guys are getting me a little paranoid. I'm not looking for any trouble out there. I'm your average Scotch-Irish manlet with blue eyes and a silver head who wants to enjoy a few peaceful days in the spring frolicking in the mountain ranges of Tora Bora.
