Hi Everyone, I hope you are
all doing well.
Many of you know that I made
it to Italy
for RR. It was ok. Italy
is beautiful but I should have planned a little better and the Euro is an
assassin. I think I could have bought Thailand for what I spent on the
trip. I went to Rome, Florence,
Pisa and Venice.
Venice was my
favorite and not just because thatís where I got some killer sushi and pizza. Venice is relaxing because
there are no cars trying to run you over and the piazzas are big and full of
people enjoying the day in little cafes.
My next RR!! RR kinda helps
you keep going in a place like Iraq.
Right now Iím leaning toward Thailand;
I need a place cheaper then Italy.
A place where I can lie on the beach and have girls
bring me stuff.† I have an older friend
here in Iraq who has a
girlfriend in Thailand
and is building a house there.† He says I
can have a massage for 4 bucks and that includes the beerÖ..not a bad
deal!!!† (Oh! And my airfare is
free.)† My friend also said the people
always smile and that you have to smile a lot too. I should be good at that!!!!† I still have time to change my mind but the
diving looks great, the tsunami is mostly behind them, they are smiling again
and the view in Phuket and Phi
are kinda nice.
Maybe Iíll meet a nice girl
who dives and wonít mind opening my beer.
Anyway, I hope you all are doing
well and congrats to everyone who now has an addition to the family and to
those of you who are uniting to form a new family.† Iím truly happy for you.† I wish I could be there to celebrate with you
guys. Boy do things change fast.†
Miss you guys, †Scott†
