The Eye in the Sky. Western Kabul
Kabul has an eye in the sky over the downtown area. Central Kabul. Monitoring activities and movement if/when something happens.
Now we have an eye in the sky in the western areas of town. It hangs above Darulaman Palace or in close proximity.
Do I feel safer? No, but I don't actually ever feel too unsafe. But it is a signal that things may get interesting on our side of town.
We have the whole Hazara / Kuchi thing in our mountains. And last may the car bomb or VBIED on the Darulaman Palace circle.
But it can be easy to think about the balloon as just a big kite in the sky that twinkles at night.
