1st week alone

Well, Mark flew out to Saudi Saturday morning. He'll be home Wednesday nite. My week has been pretty uneventful. I'm a little disorientated without him here, its a little lonely, but I could occupy my time just fine if we were a little more settled. We are still in our temporary digs living out of suit cases so I can't start 'nesting' yet....
This Ramadan thing is really cramping my style too. I don't feel comfortable taking off to do anything because it is still hot and you can't drink anything in public, I typically don't do any kind of roaming around without a coffee or water in my hand but now, when I'm told specifically I can't, well of course then I REALLY NEED SOMETHING! Its depressing out there anyways. I went to one of the malls yesterday and it was practically empty, the clerks in the stores were barely awake zombies and there was no music or anything playing (that too is forbidden this month), all the restaurants were closed as well as all the coffee shops! Travesty. I wonder how much money they loose? I'd be pissed to show up as a tourist during this. Supposedly the nightlife is pretty good, I haven't been out to see that yet.

Well just a quick post tonite - It's getting late and I need to get up in the morning and start hunting down our boxes that we shipped over that are overdue! Yay!!

Here are some daytime/nightime pictures from our balcony... Enjoy!
