impending ramadan


we now have a rented toyota yaris and a nice flat. yesterday we got a lift into muscat from sue, our immediate superior and all around cool person, and went to the airport to collect our car. we HAVE to have a car and have to rent for the first couple months because we have no labour card (which will take - obviously - two months). its cool. ill post a pic because the decal on the side says "National Travel and Tourism" and there's an address and all that. its pretty weird as its from hertz and all, but hey ... im not complaining. except that its a stick and i still suck with that...

i put my arm in a ceiling fan and bruised it today. its not so bad, but weird. how many people put there arms in ceiling fans everyday across this wicked world? i should start some kind of union.

last note for today: the omani people i have thus far encountered are really sweet and kind. i have never been anywhere where i have been greeted so openly and warmly. id heard of this hospitality from many sources, but actually experiencing it is super.

alright. still no skype.

peace out...
