This is Dave. He’s our tribal elder here at the Taj Guesthouse - Malak Dave. He runs the Synergy Strike Force, which Peretz and I are now part of. He’s a US tank gunner turned MD PhD turned hippie-humanitarian aid-tech guru. He’s responsible for the flexible, organic nature of the projects we work on and gets batches of money to make them happen. Last night at our bar (the only bar in Eastern Afghanistan) he decided to take a holiday photo to share will all our friends back home. Says Dave: Happy Holidays from Jalalabad, where the Santa Surge took them by surprise!
