Good news! I have the Visa and this morning received word from the British Council in Kabul that we are going ahead with the trip, so i will be flying to Dubai tomorrow evening. I am so relieved and excited about the trip again, i will keep you posted. The guys at the Afghan Embassy were so polite, kind and warm. I have been to many Embassies to get Visas, and this was the easiest and friendliest, apart from maybe the North Korean Embassy. But the North Korean Embassy dont have that many visitors, and you always have their undivided attention, a cup of tea, and a nice friendly chat! Thanks for reading, will write more from the desert.
