How are all of you doing? I've made it to Afghanistan and I just wanted to say hello.
It was a long journey to Afghanistan. We flew our plane from Minnesota to St. Johns, Newfoundland, CN, then to near London, England. The next day we flew to Bucharest, Romania and finally to Bagram, Afghanistan.
Afghanistan is very mountainous and dry. Some of the mountains that we fly over are 24,000' tall. That's 10'000 feet taller than the highest mountains of Colorado. We have been very busy flying almost everyday here. Our plane has carried many passengers and their cargo to many different locations in Afghanistan. The roads are in very poor shape here and often the only way to reach villages is by airplane.
Thank you again for the very special blanket. I have it hanging on my wall and it reminds me of the Pandas and everyone back in the US every day. I've thought of your class and the special presentation many times since I've been here.
Enjoy your last week of Kindergarten and have a great summer.
