B Hut

Filed under: Personal — mlah @ 5:08 pm

yeah, the army calls my little shack a b-hut.

want to see some pics?

B Hut

this is the little village of b huts where i live. you can actually see mine very well, but i won’t say which it is. there actually are taliban within about 150 km of here, so i’m all incognito.

those mountains are what are commonly known as the hindu kush. part of the himalayas.

they’re pretty

here’s the hallway inside my cozy little b-hut


and this last little bit is my cozy little cube. i’ve since nailed up some nice blankets to try and keep the heat in, so it is all dark. kind of like you see the one cube is partitioned off in the pic.


yeah. this is home til june or so. i don’t really mind anything except for the cold. mom and dad have come through and are sending an electric blanket and space heater. come on mail plane!


  1. Oh man, that looks cold as hell! No place to spend Christmas =0(

  2. Why is it called a b-hut? Should be called a d-hut. D for dismal.

  3. Wow, cool. Not the b-hut, that’s pretty ghetto, but being in some -stan w/ the nice scenery so close to the Evildoers. Can you make sexytime w/ Kyrgi girls?
    Nothing much going on politically until January when W announces what changes, if any, he’ll make in Iraq, and the new Congress convenes.
    But Moonbatty did have her baby on Friday, so that’s one more Liberal!

  4. You cubicle-home reminds me of the stalls in the lupinarium at Pompeii. About the same size and same furnishing (a bed).

  5. Watchting the pics you are too far from the Dutch, to borrow a blanket.
    Is W cutting you already off of supplies?.
