When you are hik­ing in Afghanistan, don’t always rely on the white paint­ed rocks. You should use your own bomb deters, too. Una and I were hik­ing at this sup­pos­ed­ly dem­ined area near the Bud­dha in Bamyan when we saw an unex­plod­ed bomb half buried in the dirt. Only the tail was stick­ing out and I almost almost stepped on it. It was twi­light and I gave the near­by police a shout. They did­n’t both­er to come at first. Then Una took off her yel­low sock and put it next to the bomb. Then we walked down to the police and told them about it. They said, “we’ll do some­thing about it tomorrow.”
