My heart is torn between East and West. I live somewhere between the present and the past. I don't know who I am.
Just another human being biding their time on this earth. Passionate about current affairs, history, politics (particularly MENA region), religion, cute animals and food. Posts are mainly in English but I may post in Arabic/French/Turkish.

What have those beautiful eyes seen? Lashkar Gah, Helmand Province, Afghanistan
"On a recent trip to Afghanistan, I was in Lashkar Gah and met this lady who is a sergeant in the local Counter Narcotics Unit. She picked up my helmet and asked to have a photo taken. I was told later that, in a former life, she was an interrogator and had skinned at least two Russian soldiers alive. A chance encounter on a risky trip - what have those beautiful eyes seen?"
