    March 3rd I'm flying to Saudi.

    I have my visa, invitation letter and plane ticket. Nothing can stop me now!

    My trip got reduced to 3 weeks ( :run: ) and then I leave for a week in Australia and a week in Brazil :x:.

    They have to keep low voltage electric fences around the Australia plant to keep the kangaroos out. And their biggest problem is parrots tearing up parts of the plant. I can't wait.

    free world vacation FTW.

    Saudi Arabia.

    If you are ever curious what country it is the most pain in the ass to get into, Saudi Arabia has to be at the top of the list.

    The company had to tell the government they wanted me there, the government had to issue me a invitation letter. That letter(the actual one, not a copy) has to be sent with my passport to a Saudi Embassy and get my visa put in. Then I can't leave the country until all this happens again for an exit letter. It takes...awhile.

    I can't leave until my company tells me I can :noes:

    I'm gonna try.

    Pictures are...iffy.

    Anything alive isn't supposed to be reproduced visually in Islam(or their version of it). But in the last few years it has been relaxed some. I hope so, I want pictures! But I've heard that you can get your camera taken away for taken pictures by over enthusastic muttawa (religious police).

    I really wish I could go see these, but you are only allowed in the cities if you are muslim(Mecca and Medina). The Mosques are nuts, on par(if not better) than anything the catholics ever put together.

    I would give anything to go tour those places.

    Chechen is lucky he gets to see them one day. Completely divorcing it from the religious meaning, Hajj would just be fun.

    I don't know why he insists to come by my cube about once a week to chat.

    I'm rude as fuck to him.

    Laney.

    And yep :h5:

    Just bought my plane ticket home and made an appointment to get fitted for a tux. I think I'm going to go with the very classical look. Can't go wrong with it.

    We are at a Holiday Night Select. They were going to put us in the Inner Harbor somewhere, but this place is literally next door to where we are going.

    The parents of a girl I went to high school with moved to SA right after she graduated. I always thought it was weird. I wonder if it was hard to do?
