“Cory and Madeleine not happy in armored car.”

Rachel Maddow and producer Cory Gnazzo left on Friday for Afghanistan, by way of Dubai. Rachel and Cory are traveling with NBC correspondent Richard Engel and producer Madeleine Haeringer, and right now they look about as tired as you’d expect. Rachel seems to be staying awake by taking pictures.

“Dubai airport is like a wizard-forsaken emerald city,” Rachel tweeted about midnight Eastern. Two hours later: “easy to find the flight to kabul. afghans, and plainclothes american guys with arm muscles the size of armour hams.”

We’ll have shows live Tuesday and Wednesday from Kabul.

“Welcome to Dubai – pardon our dust.”

“Thank u Japan!”
