Kabul is not as dusty as Herat, seeing that it's the largest city with lots of buildings to block the wind. A helicopter landing on the exercise field did raise an impressive cloud of dust though. However, you can usually smell smoke from the wood fires used by locals for cooking. And don't be downwind when they pump out the portapotties. Sunny, a few clouds, highs low to mid 90's, about 70 at night. High altitude as well, over a mile above sea level. I was really gasping on a 5 K run this morning. Kuwait will be close to sea level but highs will be around 115 and lows in the mid 80's. We hear they have a swimming pool there.
