Kabul Korrespondence

Fresh, factual, and funky view of Afghanistan and the surrounding Central Asian region

Only in Afghanistan

Saturday, January 10, 2009

Caught up with an Afghan friend today and he told me he had been in a accident. I asked him if he was ok and what happened?

"oh I'm fine thank you. I was driving a long and this pick-up ran up the back of me and then sped off. As it passed me I noticed it was the Police. So I chased them, but they had turned on their sirens and were weaving through the traffic faster than I could."

I asked him, so what did you do?

"Well I called my uncle who is a chief of Police. He asked me for the registration number, I told him. He identified them and called them up on the radio and ordered them to pull over."

"When I finally caught up to them, I had a little chat with them, told them they are here to protect us, not to destroy us and then run off."
