This is Dave. He’s our trib­al elder here at the Taj Guest­house — Malik Dave. He runs the Syn­er­gy Strike Force, which Peretz and I are now part of. He’s a US tank gun­ner turned MD PhD turned hip­pie-human­i­tar­i­an aid-tech guru. He’s respon­si­ble for the flex­i­ble, organ­ic nature of the projects we work on and gets batch­es of mon­ey to make them hap­pen. Last night at our bar (the only bar in East­ern Afghanistan) he decid­ed to take a hol­i­day pho­to to share will all our friends back home. Says Dave: Hap­py Hol­i­days from Jalal­abad, where the San­ta Surge took them by surprise!
