Sign from Afghanistan - Michael

 We love finding signs in Japan, made by Japanese, written in English, by people whose native language is not English.  I have discovered the same kind of thing in Afghanistan but with German, French, Italian, Dari and others writing the signs.  Now, I am willing to bet that what this sign is prohibiting is actually not a real problem.  However, if it is a real problem, I do not want to meet the individuals who are struggling with this as an issue in their lives.  I am thinking, though, if you were really wanting to discourage people from smoking, allowing smoking only where it is prohibited by the sign, would significantly decrease all but the truly dedicated smoker's desire to smoke at all.

De'Etta, I just spend some time catching up on your blog. I have missed blogging and reading blogs. I am trying to get myself back into the good habit of posting and reading the blogs I love most.

I have enjoyed all your adventures in Japan, reading about Mike's deployment and your walk to create a balance between all your responsibilities and taking care of yourself. It is all good.

I miss you.

I have to agree with you, Michael - allowing smoking ONLY inside those porta-jonnies would definitely deter all but the most dedicated (or addicted) to use it. I hear tell those P-J's get really hot in the summer.....
