Not Just a Cup of Tea


A cup of chai tea was poured by local farmers for Coalition Forces as they discuss ways of improving the village’s quality of life in Deh-e-Muslem on Nov. 3, 2009.¬† A cup of chai is an offering of friendship and is often served before any meeting. ¬†Developing strong, trusting relationships amongst Afghan nationals and Coalition Forces is the building block for success.
