Perfume Palace, Iraq



Here's some pics of where I was supposed to work.  The Perfume Palace, so called because it's where Saddam kept his women.  Evidently they want me working in the bigger palace- Al Faw.  I'll post some pics of that when I get a chance.  Yep, that's a man-made lake.  There's a lot of them.  Saddam sure knew how to blow his money, but you know what?  He still wound up hiding in a hole, then being buried in one anyway.

Bad news is, I'll be staying in a big tent for at least a month, maybe as many as 2-3. :-( 
I'm asking for a non-snoring tent this time though! BWAHAHAHAHA. I need sleep!  Sleeping with earplugs sucks, so I'm hoping I can hit the PX and pick up some muffs or something.  I could always order some online via Amazon and get them in a few days- of course by then I might just go crazy for lack of sleep.

Not sure how much I'll be able to get online after the next day or so, since I've got to move down in the world before I can move up- though I hear there might be an internet cafe I can visit... I do know I'll appreciate sharing a small trailer with "just one other person" a lot more after sharing a tent (again).
