    Here I am coming to you directly from Iraq. This place is filthy, destroyed, smelly, poor and did I mention filthy? Sheesh. Well it's been a while though now I can speak to you again. I fly halfway around the world, or so it seems to me, to a desert and find that I made it just in time for the cold wet season. Yay. So far, not much rain and not too cold though I'm told it will get worse. Lot of things on the roads to see though none that leave an impression.

    Hope everything is going well with everyone and will talk again when I can.

    From the sounds of it, they have cleaned it up and things are improving! Wait until January, it will rain, and when it does, you will understand why Noah built an ark. You will also get a real lesson on what real mud is, none of that namby pamby mud we have here in the states. I have never seen mud before that you can scrub with a bristle brush and water, and do nothing more than smear it around! For those of you that don't know what I am talking about, here is a picture of my living area. Try walking through that:
    Have fun and enjoy, these are the days of a great adventure for you, at least that is what the recruiting poster says.

    I'm looking forward to the rainy season. Nothing makes you feel so good as being frozen and wet. Haha. Thanks for all the comments. I will be here for a while and hopefully heading home in as good health as I am now. So far have seen lots of poverty, kids fighting over a bag of chips, and destroyed car bodies. It's not gotten hot and heavy yet, though there is always tomorrow. Haha.

    And hope that it does not get that way, We had it happen "ONE" time. The results for us was one "KIA" and one "WIA". Our WIA lost both his left arm and leg. Do your job and get back in one piece.
