Here in Afghanistan they use Connexs for everything. There are hundreds and hundreds of them everywhere.
They are used for housing, toilets, supply, storage, working space. I was shocked the first time I walked into one and found a bed, a TV, an A.C. unit and other personal items.
I guess more shocking is when they’re used for latrines and showers. When I go to shower every morning, I’m showering in a Connex. There is – amazingly – alot of room in there. Only four showers and two sinks but a shower is better then no shower at all. A couple of my friends are part of a unit standing up a new remote base and they have NO showers! Eck! Imagine 15 months of water bottle showers.
