What's it like in Afghanistan?

I spent a year in Iraq as a tank crewman:

5 months in a no-frills company-sized base near Baghdad with daily action
5 months in a really nice battalion-sized base in southern Iraq with no action
1 month in an isolated platoon-sized outpost in the middle of the desert
1 month in transit between all the different places.

We're talking about going to Afghanistan next. I have a pretty good idea of what Iraq's like from my tour over there, but I know next to nothing about the other sandbox.

If it's relevant, I'm going over as a Cavalry Scout this time around. We're a RSTA squadron and train both dismounted and with humvees.

What's the terrain like? The weather? The locals? The type of engagements? The living accommodations?
