9. When I was there

You only saw the face of a post-pubescent woman in Kabul proper.

Even there, it was the exception.

Granted I didn't do more than a few dozen convoys, but whenever we saw women they were always full on burqa. Even working hard doing manual labor in the sun, full burqa.

On the few occasions I got to interact or even be seen by them, I hope I served as an example that women could be more than their society told them.
