Looking for a serene getaway while touring the beautiful vistas of southern Afghanistan’s Kandahar Air Field? Look no further than Kandahar Poo Pond. To the New York Times, it’s a “lake-sized pool of human excrement that fills a section of the sprawling American and NATO base,” but to us, it’s so much more. Conveniently located by Kandahar International Airport — known for its wonderful skin-exfoliating sandstorm treatments — and surrounded by the Taliban miles of endless sheds, barracks, and storehouses, the Kandahar Poo Pond is your No. 1 locale for rest and relaxation in the sunny province, your home away from home.
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
