Hey everybody!!! I'm in Germany. Who ever imagine that some small town boy would ever set foot in a foreign country. Germany is pretty nice. The countryside is beautiful. It was raining when I got here but it's been fairly sunny since. I had to take a taxi yesterday to get to my hotel. The driver didn't know where the place was, so between his English and my German, we finally found the place. Oh, by the way, don't argue directions with someone in a foreign language on the Autobahn. It's not for the faint of heart.
My flight into Afghanistan (hereafter referred to as the 'stan) leaves tomorrow at 1140 EST. I fly into Bagram and then move to Camp Phoenix near Kabul.
To all of you, thank you for the prayers. Keep 'em coming. To my family, I love you and miss you all very much. I'll blog again when I get a minute.
