Well I made it here to lovely Baghdad, Iraq. We got here at the start of the rainy season. That's great!!! We pretty much live in the middle of a lake. All the places they have made living areas, use to be farmland. So they were designed to hold water. Built in the low areas of the Palace grounds. We live in trailers, that aren't too bad. I could definately have it worse. And I kinda think I would rather have it that way, cause that would mean I was out doing the "fun" stuff. But the Lord decided to put me here. I work in a Palace. It's gigantic. Everything is made of marble. All different colors, everywhere. There are chandiliers everywhere too. The one in the main lobby is about 25' tall and about 15' across. It has marble colums that are about 5' thick 3 stories tall and go all around the main lobby. The palace in the middle of a lake, that Saddam use to fish in. There are smaller houses around the lake that are mabey 3 to 8000 sq'. And there's balconies all around the 3rd story you can look out over the lake on.
The Chow Hall's are amazing. There are 2, the Oasis, and the Coalition. They both serve the same stuff, ones just bigger than the other. We have steaks, lobster, crab legs, catfish, some local fish, and assorted veggies about once a week. There's a spagetti bar, taco bar, and salad bar everyday. There are fridges along the middle that have soft drinks, gatoraid, and neer beer everyday for free. There's a juice bar, that has REAL SWEET TEA everyday. There's a smoothie bar and even BASKIN ROBBINS in there that serves 3 times a day.
There is a Pizza Hut, Subway, and Green Bean Coffee house. The coffee place is open 24/7, wich is great for those coffee feins.
In about a month, I'll have internet in my room. Then I'll be able to start uploading pics. I'll have the before and after pics of my trailer. I live in Dodge City North, and it's pretty dreary there. If you know what Phoenix looks like, it's kinda like that. BROWN and gray. We have concrete bunkers between all the trailers, which gives it the brownish gray look. Not very upbeat. But I'm working to fix that in my little area. Pics to follow.
Well that's about it for now. Hope everybody has a great day.
For now, I'm out.
