But then i met my good friend Mirwaiss Sidiqi, who is in charge of the Aga Khan Cultural Centre in Kabul. We had a great time and he will arrange for me to meet some of the older and more established Afghan Musicians. So on Sunday i will spend the day with a 10 piece traditional Orchestra, including an 87 year old Dilruba player. Suddenly, my purpose for being here is renewed! Great! And tomorrow i am back at the University teaching. Music Education is limited, and still, music is not taught in regular schools. The dedicated music schools here have limited facilities, and yet, the Afghan spirit is so strong, they are survivors.
As i came back to the British Council Compound, i saw a Jumbo Jet flying overhead with a Military escort, probably Barack Obama, he was supposed to arrive this week.
