Car wash in Jalalabad

Oct 8, 2011   //   by Hameed   //   Uncategorized  //  No Comments

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.
