My worst fears have come true; I'm stuck here at Camp Black Bear in Velika Kladusa, Bosnia, using an army PC. It's not so bad, certainly no worse than the two-hour layover we had at Greenville Airport, somewhere in the Anapolis Valley, before finally leaving the continent to get here.

I can't write too much; I'm expected at this moment at a meet & greet with the troops... All I can say is that I arrived safely (well, duh), and that landmines are a real concern here. We had to sit through a forty-five minute PowerPoint on the subject -- apparently a seven year-old girl blew herself to bits a couple of weeks ago.

But get this: My jet lag is so bad that I actually fell asleep during the montage of grisly victim photos!

More tomorrow...
