I had a severe jet lag in Kuwait, so bad that I past out at work the first day. What a hassle! The firm decided to end my contract, so I headed home. I asked to be put on leave without pay, so that I could have 90 days of consecutive unemployment.

I arrived in Kuwait

I took United flight 982 from Dulles Airport Washington DC, direct non-stop to Kuwait. 12 (twelve) hours in the air, plus 7 hours of time change. Got on the aircraft at 1000pm Friday night, arrived in Kuwait 5:30pm Saturday afternoon. Went to the Best Western hotel, climbed in the rack. The human body was not designed to travel at 600mph, and sit in one position for 12 hours. Hotel is nice, will be living here for three or so months. Sunday off, rested, watched some TV. Will go check in, and ID cards, and do paperwork on Monday. Must be at the lobby by 0630 am. Not civilized to be up at such an hour. I will inquire if there is a masonic lodge or square and compass club here, but not likely. Stay tuned.

I just spoke with the travel agent! I am departing next week, from Dulles Airport (Washington DC area). I am so glad to be returning to the Mideast. Just wish there was some freemasonry there.

Leaving next week.

I am in my home in Alexandria VA. I just heard from my project manager, that I will be departing for Kuwait, on or about 23 April. I am looking forward to this assignment, of course. BUT, I doubt if there is any Freemasonry there. I have transited Kuwait over 40 times, going and coming from Iraq/Afghanistan. There was a lodge in Kuwait over a decade ago, but it is long gone. If anyone knows of any regular, recognized Freemasonry in Kuwait, please let me know.
