So we are leaving Afghanistan. In a few weeks, we will be back in Perth, for a good long while. Mixed feelings accompany this move. Relief, delight, regret, sorrow. It is more than four years we have spent in this country and it is hard to imagine our life without Afghanistan in it. But it is time to do so.
Feeling ambivalent and exhausted at the thought of moving the other night, freezing as winter approaches, no hot water, no electricity, Julie said,' I have two words for you: Cold beer.'
