This is a photo of the inside of Le Jardin, a wonderful Afghan-French cafe with excellent coffee, pastries, and wi-fi. I spent many hours here; it was a peaceful oasis, a place where I felt safe being 'outside'. The courtyard (seen here) was filled with roses, lavender, pomegranate, pear, and apple trees. This sleek, young horse mowed the lawn and the restaurant owners were kind and generous.
So it was sad to hear the news this morning that Le Jardin was the victim of a huge suicide car bomb attack which killed at least two people and injured 15 more. Sorry Le jardin, thinking of you.
