Final morning in Dubai

I must go to the airport at 0700am. I will fly on to Afghanistan this morning. It has been a very pleasant week in Dubai.

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.

In Dubai

I am sitting in the hotel in Dubai. Waiting for an Afghan Visa. I like this hotel, it is nice.

Back to Afghanistan

I completed the work with the old firm, at Camp Leatherneck. I am now working for a new firm. I will be posted to the "Green Village" in Kabul, the capital.
