Happy Birthday, and thank you again for your service. Awesome pictures. It is hard to imagine that what look like cardboard boxes in the 2nd pics, are really homes. Wow...
Thanks Guys,
That is actually a cemetery. Those are the grave sites. Had to look twice when I saw them

thanks for your service:bigthumbsup:

cool pics, one question though.

Is there a reason why all the buildings, architecture is all painted the exact same color? there's no variation in paint schemes except for mosques or palaces.

just wondering it really stuck out seeing those pics and knowing that everything here in the US is more colorful

The reason for the brown/tan color is that alot of the stuff out here is what we call "Mud Huts". Its literally like some cheap stucko made with the dirt. Along with all the blowing dust/sand all the time everything gets to be that color sooner or later. I also don't think they really bother to paint anything, except for the mosques.
