Day Three

Everything gets turned upside down during Ramadan. Tonight I had a dentist appointment at midnight, but as I was getting ready to go, the dentist's office called to reschedule my appointment until mid September. Dentists don't like to work during Ramadan during the day because people think having dental work done will break their fast. Most dentists work at night during Ramadan. I'm not sure what's up with my dentist. I was looking forward to getting my dental work done. I'll have to wait now.

My PC has been giving me grief. Coming up with errors… RAM parity, checksum… sigh… The advice I got was to get a new PC because mine is about 8 years old. But I like my PC. We’ve been through lots of stuff together. I like it better than my old laptop and my new netbook. I don’t want a new one. And besides, money these days is going to the furnishing of my house. I opened up the case and cleaned away some of the dust bunnies. Then I went to the shop and bought new RAM and came home and installed it. There are still errors but it’s running. I will manage to squeeze the life out of it a bit more.

We're still looking for furniture. We need a dining room set and a kitchen table. In the meantime we are using two white plastic tables. They will do the job until I find what I want. I need two coffee tables and a china cabinet. Most importantly I need a bedroom set. So the hunt continues. While everyone in Libya is busy foraging for the perfect Ramadan breakfast food I am looking at furniture. At least the furniture shops aren't crowded.


  1. Have you considered going to Yahya Dental Center on Gorgi Road across from Tripoli College? They're great -- the best I've seen in Libya. And open 24 hours a day.
