Soviet Officer's Club
This past Friday, we made a run out to a military training base on the outskirts of Kabul in order to recon the route (only one member of our team had been out there before), as well as to get oriented to the base itself. Several of us will have a chance to attend some classes there in the near future. It turns out that this used to be a Soviet military base back in the day; one the outskirts of the town, butted up against the mountains, along an major road, it was a natural and defensible location. The picture above is the abandoned Soviet officer's club, a la 1970s. A beautiful location, but they could have done a better job on the design, that is for sure.
