A common afghan name for men is "Gul Bacha" which means flower boy. Also I hear that there is a kid in the village named Milk boy!
|We visited our friend Hashim’s house. In case you had any doubt, Hashim is a beautiful man, and he also likes to give lots of hugs and kisses during greetings. Afghan greetings are incredible routines and they say several paragraphs worth of nice words for greeting. Actually we have two friends named Hashim and they are both steadfast and kind of heart, dancing lightly in place.|
His house was the typical home of average afghans, just some mud and dirt and very bare for most of the house and then a guest room filled with cushions and blankets and rugs. And his Children! Beautiful namers from a milk covered Island! His youngest daughter, Habibila is the most beautiful combo every of Emma Gayed and a beautiful beautiful troll doll. For real, Joe ,this is really it. We’ve found a toddler that is an actual troll doll. So amazing. He also fed us this amazing food that was even better than our friend Ismael’s food. (In his face!)
I felt guilty though seeing his house and then staying in the nice office we are currently staying in. But soon we will move to a new office that is less fancy, although still better than his living conditions. But then I will soon move to the village and live in a house like Hashim and bathe in a river and wipe my butt with my hand and water (maybe). More on my feelings about the poverty here later perhaps.
