peep dinner at pearl street

Rory and I would enjoy your company at Pearl Street for a peep dinner. Thursday at 6:30pm. Kind of like a mini anniversary party! Please RSVP by this evening so I can call ahead and reserve some tables :)

jordan

I'm a little late getting this posted, but here are a few pics from our trek to Jordan.

image
a quantum physics experiment perhaps?

image

image
walking the valley of the crescent moon

image
the first peek you get of the treasury (we had a guide for part of our trek, he made Rory close his eyes for a minute and then told him to turn around to see the view - while he played Indiana Jones from his cell phone. It was kind of funny.

image
the treasury (no, there are no transformers hiding there, i checked)

image
it's hard to imagine people actually living in these little caves

image
then we drove 2,000 feet below sea level to the dead sea (the water bottles in the car were actually crushed from the pressure change!)

image
the salt content is so intense it's actually hard to stay 'standing'...but you don't want your face near the water because the tiniest drop of your lip burns like a son of a pup!

image
once i found my 'balance' i managed to stand up...this is in 10 feet of water, 'standing' completely still

image
and of course we played in the famed mud

Since I'm on a 2 week staycation and slightly bored at times, I found some new entertainment.

you know you live in doha when

You go for a swim in the pool at 7pm and after 15 minutes say, 'oooh, it's a bit chilly now, think I'll go back home'. Get home and look at the thermometer and it reads...102 F. Yah. Today was fuck all hot as ass, and dusty to boot. Bad day to have to move.

Forecast for tomorrow? 113 F, heat index of 152 F with warnings of 'extremely hot' weather. I think the outdoor laborers might actually get the afternoon off!

the time has come

Well, she's on the market. I just hope it brings the buyer as much unexpected joy as she did for me! We met because of this car and I hate to sell it, but we won't need a car in central London! Bye-bye my little Kia.
