Yep...I’m home for now and enjoying things like family, friends, football season and good food. Oh, and being able to drive freely around without being hemmedin by T-walls. ;-)
I’ll be heading somewhere where they speak Arabic before too long. Not sure where yet. There are some who are trying to get me to go to that place where they speak mostly Pashtun/Farsi, but I’m resisting that for now.
May you both have a healthy, prosperous and happy 2012!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year FRiend!
A corner store?
Be safe. I was in the Pashtun/Dari Farsi region a few years ago. Speak Farsi and Dari (80% similar then it stops abruptly, specially accent).
Funny how our talking heads idiotically say that Iran cannot block the Straits of Hormoz, when all it takes is to sink a couple of rust buckets by opening their bilges or our navy to sink a couple of Iranian ships in the narrow channel and oil tanker traffic stops. Right then and there. Till we can remove the wrecks! Not so easy for us, simple for them.
