Libya's streets are a mess.. but I've cleaned up my desk!
After a busy week I'm spending a quiet weekend. Today I concentrated on sorting out my office area. My desk is finally visible. I managed to file away all my papers and dejunk the area. I'm pleased with the result.
The rest of my weekend will be spent doing laundry, a bit of gardening and possibly meeting a friend for coffee.
Oh, I can't forget to mention that I'm also going to start reading 'The Hunger Games' trilogy. My daughter Nora is a huge fan. She's been begging me to read the books for ages and is now anxiously waiting to see the film. She even had a t-shirt custom designed by a girl she knows at university who's started a small business designing t-shirts.
A few gripes to get off my chest:
- I noticed while driving around this week that some (but not all) of the potholes are being filled in. So maybe there is hope! Keep up the work - Ainzara Road is still miserable.
- Unfortunately the garbage situation is worsening. Huge piles of trash line the streets and roads around town - many have been set alight, thick smoke fills the air. It's quite depressing... and smelly.
- LTT Wimax is still horrible. I paid 40 dinars, only to have sporadic Internet service and a slow connection. I feel so cheated! Almadar's Internet isn't much better. (I finally gave up trying to post this yesterday ... it's a day late!)
That's all for the moment. Have a great weekend!
