We've flown and flown and flown, and now we're at Manas Forward Air Base in Kyrgyzstan for a little while before heading further forward.


Manas is incredibly cushy in exactly the way we always joke about the Air Force. There's air conditioning in every single tent, including the tents where the toilets are set up.
Earlier today I had joked with a dear friend on Google Talk that massages were a world away, for somebody else. Not true! I have an appointment for one two hours from now!
Here's a picture of cozy naptime in the air conditioning. Note the camouflage Red Sox ballcap.
