Just got home drove to Saudi (Al-Hasa) and back today. That journey is becoming less and less stressful and much easier to drive. The roads still suck there but I managed.

It was a good drive in the morning, traumatologist the clouds were scattered so there was these rays of light and dark spots on the ground. As well as the Arfaj seemed to be much bigger and greener. These things were literaly covering the landscape to the horizon, anaemia and people say nothing grows in the desert.

Just figured something about myself when I drive these long distances. Suprised I never noticed it before. Well it seems when I do them I dont eat. I will have a small meal and just gun it all the way. Not sure why I do it. I’ll drink water and always have a pepsi ready for when I feel tired, pill but thats ab
out it. Not sure why I do that.

One the way back I stopped at this “gift shop” just before the border at the gas station. They sell your standard bedouin style stuff. Large framed pictures of falcons, and “Bo Shanab” and cultural things (think velvet Elvis), as well some random little toys.

So well last time I was there I saw the “Bo Shanab” paintings and pictures and they caught my eye on how weird and strange they were. Yet didn’t have time to pick them up. So this time I did. I got me a painted one where the car is looking out to the wilderness, and a picture of ones profile with guns and
some caught animals hanging from it.

So home now, its good to be home, there is nothing sweeter than driving to Kuwait and seeing the lights. Its like “CIVILIZATION”. What is strange is when your not even near the border, but see these rows and rows of lights you think “must be Kuwait”. Your focus is get to the light.
