Taliban is Helping my Budget

So for those who may not have heard the news, there was a pretty big incident here in Kabul. The Taliban stormed the only five start hotel in town with suicide bombs and spraying bullets. Six people were killed, including an American, a Norwegian, a Filipino, and three Afghans. While terrorist attacks are nothing new in Kabul, it was the first attack aimed at westerners since the supposed fall of the Taliban in 2001.

While the incident itself was quite horrific, the consequences afterwards are even more dire. The Taliban has issued a warning that they will be targeting western frequented restaurants and shops.

This means that we are now and lock-down, and can’t even leave the house for toothpaste. I was disgruntledly ruminating on the reality of being on house-arrest, I realized that the Taliban has actually done my wallet a great favor. This means that I’ll certainly spend at least two to three hundred dollars less each month simply by not being able to leave the house.

The irony is that this gives no comfort to not being able to leave the house. Another reminder that money isn’t any good if you don’t have freedoms.

Be appreciative for each step you take in the free air.

Regards,

Miel
