EAT YOUR WORDS

Speaking some of the local lingo always helps and never more than when it’s time for a meal. Afghans will appreciate your efforts, even if your pronuncia- tion is off the mark, and it might help you get beyond the default kabab/pulao (rice with meat or vegetables) dining options. For more information about pronunciation and other language phrases, see the Language chapter, p227 .
