Squadron Leader Matt Radnall (RAF Regiment)
One night at dinner, my son asked me if we could pretend we were at a restaurant. "Sure Kiddo, we can". I was scurrying back and forth to the kitchen, so he thought it would be fun to pretend he was ordering from the cook - me. Then he looked up and asked, "Daddy, do they have restaurants in Afghanistan?" "Yes they do, Kiddo, but they are different than ours." How to explain everything...so I cracked out the pictures...
Finding a place to sit
And I told him how they didn't sit on chairs, didn't really have a table,
Would you like to sit in the automatic weapons or non-automatic weapons section?
We shared everything, and also that the food was very good.
That also made me think about finding some place to "dine Afghan" in the Chicago area. I found two places:
Afghan Restaurant - 11 miles N - 2818 W Devon Ave, Chicago, 60659 - (773) 262-8000
Kabul House Afghan Fine Cuisines - 14 miles N - 3320 Dempster St, Skokie, 60076 - (847) 763-9930
Thanks, Kiddo, for reminding me of all that!
