Incidental Meetings


(local village, with a wonderful view for watching us watching them)

A new moon rising, clear sky full of stars, and a gentle breeze wafting the delicate aroma of concentrated portajohn contents to the temporary quarters; just another lovely evening on the FOB. On the upside, a two-hour conversation with a former Captain in the Bosnian army on his experiences in the war, the change in values of both people and commodities during such, and his views on religion, culture, and international relations while waiting for a transport helicopter to arrive.
