Scary vacation

Blogger Ben Hammersly is on his way to Afghanistan to report back. He's blogging the trip.

In a choice between dubious airline and a roadtrip where the Pakistani authorities insist that you take a gunman with you to the border, and I guess itís more calming to take the plane. Of course, the incessant worries about the wings dropping off and suchlike are still there - itís the *Afghan* national airline, after all - but I guess that both statistically I was more likely to be in an accident in the taxi ride to the airport, and, as I say, if you can read this Iím obviously ok.
