Generally, there are two types of car washes in Jalalabad: 1. fancy and expensive that commanders, et. al. use and 2. river and stream sides located ones that use a small gennie to pump water and hose down cars.
Below is a hand pressure pump that is used to splash oil under the car so that it doesn’t get rusty. Most of the cars that we use in Afghanistan are used cars that get dumped here after they are first used in Canada, the U.S. or Japan mainly. Their bottoms are really rusty after they were used in those countries in snow and salt on snow.
I am neither a commander nor the son of a commander so I usually use the latter.
