Peaceful evening

Wow, i really recommend a nice walk in this fresh breeze at souq sharq right before going to bed.

Moving

I’m on a quest to find a perfect, simple, not-too-expensive design for a small bedroom. With all the ideas i’ve been looking at online, I can’t seem to find what my bedroom needs. Anyone knows a website or a forum where I can provide the dimensions and they will help me out with ideas?

On the way bck to k town

Posted in Internet, personal, Travel at 1:24 am by Salah

At last we reached Kuwait’s Zain coverage area on our way back home. Man do we all miss the beautiful 3G sign! Happy to be home (within the next couple of hours). The temperature here in Safwan right now is–I think– about 8 C. For some reason I couldn’t find Safwan on the iphone’s weather app.

Well, hopefully things will go smoothly and I’ll be tucked in my warm bed in no time.

Karbala

Posted in occasions, personal, Travel at 1:58 pm by Salah

Since the situation in Karbala at Imam Hussein’s courtyard is under strict security and protection, phones are not allowed inside. Thus, my phone always stayed home. Today however, I decided that I’ll go through the hassle and leave my phone at the valubales boxes (not sure about the term, but it’s like safety boxes). Everyone told me it’s going to delay us, but it took no more than 10 secs to give them the phone and receive a traceable box number.

After we finished our rituals, we got out, took the phone and we all were happy that we had a chance to take photos. But I was also happy that now I can show my friends the old methods they use to sell consumable goods.

The pic is for a ciggerate stand and a sammoon (bread, or pretzels) stand at the street of qeblat imam hussein. At least ten scenes I passed by made me wish that I brought my DSLR to get those good shots I always wanted.

Still in Iraq

Waiting for the sun to set, then going to continue the rituals. Right now, I’m discovering how attached I am to the ipad. Damn thing is a must for any destination in the world!

Damage control

Man, having an access to the internet is such a life saver. And I mean that in so many different ways! I hope everyone is well.

Getting closer

Posted in personal, Travel at 2:39 am by Salah

Just had a quick nap, woke up to see everyone else is taking one as well. I’m a bit more relaxed now, and waiting for the next stop where we’ll change busses. Only god knows what’s waiting for me there, and I hope it’s all good.

Off to another road trip

I’m nervous, afraid, happy, tired, fired up and so many other emotions all blended in one bus. Yet, I couldn’t be any luckier!

See you in a week folks.

A bad hair day

Posted in personal at 2:17 am by Salah

Recently, I’ve been relating myself with this statement a lot. There are days when my hair would look weird, and I would have no other way to fix it but to wear a hat.

Not today though!

P.S: I’m not very fixated with my hair or my looks, I’m just blogging!

It was a long day.

Posted in personal, Travel at 1:46 pm by Salah

Just walked in my house after a one day trip to Dammam KSA that started 4:30 AM, and ended at 8:30 PM same day.

Man, after such a trip, nothing is like taking off the clothes i’ve been wearing and standing under a nice shower before going to bed!
