See the Sea

6 May 07
Temperatures are rising fast. Today was 101º but we’ve already had temps up to 105º…and it’s early May! It isn’t even a dry heat either. Basrah is only a 30 or so miles from the Arab/Persian Gulf so it’s very humid.

Adnan used to work at the port of Umm Qasr as a ship agent. Umm Qasr is only a few miles up the Shatt Al Arab River from the Arab/Persian Gulf. Despite that, he has never seen the Gulf. At the port he could see the mouth of the river but he never went down to see the sea up close.

The British mouse trap caught another mouse. Tally is now 7-1 in favor of the Brits. I’m going to have to modify the U.S. trap.
