Sunday 30 Oct

Well, my last night in the Trader's Hotel in Dubai. I will by flying on to Afghanistan on Monday. I am always apprehensive about a new job, but maybe this one will work out. I sure do meet the qualifications.

I hope that I can participate in Freemasonry there. If there is no lodge, I want to set up an informal "Square and Compasses" club. As long as we are recognized by the base commander, there will be no objections from anyone.

I have a terrible case of jet-lag. As I get older, I guess my physiology is taking longer to make the adjustments. Your entire physiology takes a whacking when you fly to the other side of the world. Your sleep habits are upside down, and your eating and digestive tract are also working on a different schedule.

I have been hanging out at the hotel, I dislike wandering about the dirty hot streets of Dubai. I may take the metro-train to the mall, and do a little shopping.

Currently sitting at airport in Dubai awaiting flight to AFG. I am not a member yet but hope to find a lodge on the base I will be going to. Had no luck last time I was there. Have save travels!
