The  beaches of Mauritius-Africa
Write? Right! Blogging is literature in a hurry.
Tourists   generally, don't see a country as it is, they  see them as theirs is.This requires expending tremendous amounts of energy to have so called “normal” experiences on vacations; where taking a safari is actually seeing all the caged stuffed animals in the zoo.
Travelers have occurrences, while abroad. They cannot be created,  they  undergo them.  They are somatic and   visceral and in-your-face. Too bad my videos don’t include SMELL-avision. The stench to my olfactory is awesome! without imitation, without precedent.  For these occurrences   to become an adventure,   however, it is necessary to recount them later at a cocktail party or blogging about them.
Should I kill myself, or have a cup of  Starbucks coffee?
When I travel these unusual places of poverty and despair,  I  must open  myself to the gentle indifference of these  worlds, Remaining happy  means I  must not be too concerned with others. My world expands or contracts according to how much heart or courage  I possess while  being a traveler. Courage is a love affair with the unknown-The courage to be is  the courage to leave things alone as they are. It has been said that hell is other ppl (people) but I am a "people" person ,and I love people- and you have to learn to leave alone the things you love.

Freedom after all, comes from what you to do to what has been done to you. TCN’s (Third Country Nationals)  don’t wait for Judgment Day- It comes everyday. Their  very existence of  is an act of rebellion.
There is not one big cosmic meaning one size fits for all. There is only the meaning we each give to our own  idiosyncratic drama, an  idiosyncratic meaning, an idiosyncratic plot, like an idiosyncratic movie, a screenplay   for each person.
Life is like a movie- You have to decide what movie you want to be in.

Hump Day at Bahrain's Royal Camel Farm in at Al Janabiya,

Bahrain, officially the Kingdom of Bahrain is a small island country situated near the western shores of the Persian Gulf.

 We got there by car, from Al Khobar, over the King Faud Causeway; a series of bridges and causeways connecting Saudi Arabia with the island. It has that Key West-Island-Hopping- Feel to it, but not quite as spectacular as 7 mile causeway that links florida with The Keys.

We stopped by The Bahrain International Circuit, where they are gettingr eady for thsi weeks FIA World Endurace "6 Hours In Bahrain".

They don't have a Miss Universe Contest, but they have a Camel Beauty Pageant in the Gulf, one in ther UAE and also in Saudi. How do you jedge a Camels "hotness"- Both male and female camels participate in the pageant where a camel's beauty is assessed based on "the size of its head; whether its lips cover its teeth, the length of its neck and the roundness of its hump."


The  Arabian Peninsula has a huge cultural connection 
with the camel, and for the Bedouins of the past, the camel was 
revered as a sacred symbol of life amid the inhospitable desert.
 This one got a little too close.

 As long as you have an equal number of take-offs
and landings, you're doing fine!

We're AmeriCANS not AmeriCANT'S
I'm on land but Is The Dead Sea Clay Mask going overboard?

300 Reasons you might be a Redneck... Thank you Jeff Foxworthy! Now I have to decide "You know you have been in Saudi Arabia too long when....

1. You don't see any problem with a goat riding in the passenger seat.

2.You think being liberated means sitting in the female section

3.You expect to go to jail when a local national hits the back of your car at a stop sign. 

4. You think a red light is just a "suggestion." 

5.You resign your position a year in advance
