Pete's Log: Eatin' good in the neighborhood

Entry #1491, Sun, July 15, 2007, 23:47 AST (Travel)
(posted when I was 28 years old.)

There's an Applebees in Riyadh.

This experience is better so far than the last one. The hotel is better, I've got internet access, and I've got people to do things with: two Germans and an Italian as well as our Saudi host.

It's quite hot here. 50+ C during the day. It is dry, though, so it's a bit more bearable. But indoors is air-conditioned almost to the point of being too cold. I don't much enjoy the extreme temperature fluctuation.

I'm on day seven of a ten day week. The weekend here is Thursday/Friday. So it's kind of like Tuesday today. I did take part of the day off on Thursday, and Friday was a travel day, but I still feel like I lost a weekend.

There isn't much else to report, but I figured I'd take advantage of the internet access to write up an update...

You need to go there and tell the server it's your birthday (unless they cut out your tongue for lying there) by ajanisze (Tue, July 17, 2007, 23:44)
Glad this trip's more bearable. Still, don't turn 29 in damned Arabia, ok? That would be bullshit.
