    I leave at 14:45 PDT from San Diego today, and I should be leaving the US about 6 or so hours after that (I have a transfer in Los Angeles). I will not be back home until May 6th around 21:40 PDT, though I'll probably be pretty beat at that point. Internet access availability and reliability while in Riyadh is unknown, though it will likely be censored and may also be monitored.

    I have Tor in hopes that it'll work, but who knows how reliable it might be. Apparently packet loss is often a major problem in that part of the world, so tunneling is often near-impossible or at least highly unreliable.

    Varelse: I hope you pop on before I leave (should get to the airport around 12:00 PDT, and there is wifi there, so I'll be on once I make it through everything I need to do).

    I didn't find wifi that wasn't expensive in the international terminal in Los Angeles, though I was on in San Diego until shortly before I took off.

    There was none available anywhere else that wasn't expensive like in Los Angeles, so I didn't get on, then there was nothing once I made it to Riyadh and the hotel, which doesn't have internet access for guests at all.

    This is my exact location when I'm there: 24.92369N, 046.71228E

    Right now I'm at our office in Riyadh, which is at the following location: 24.74947N, 046.64012E

    My time zone is +3, so shift for your time zone to guess when I might be on (daytime here, ~10/11 to ~20/21, with a big space in the middle, which is middle-eastern managerial/salaried/etc hours...only the working class does 8-5 here).

    The internet connection is really slow and unreliable here, so I'll be signing off soon. Hope you're all well.

    Peace be with you,
    Eric

    We have specially-trained drivers and special SUVs provided by our sponsor that transport us about in the country. I took these shots while we were having a whirlwind tour of the town yesterday evening:

    I'm still in Saudi Arabia. No more good pictures of the trip because it's not really a good idea to take a lot of touristy pictures here for a number of reasons... Just got back from the mall after only buying one thing - some perfume in a neat bottle for mum. I'm bringing back all the coins and bills I can land around the hotel, too, since dad is into collecting such things (he's also getting my 500 Saudi Riyal (SR) bill when I get there, which is worth $133.32). I have a comically-valuable half-dinar coin from Bahrain ($1.32) that the guy behind the desk just gave me (OMG! It's worth 5 saudi riyals, and I offered to pay him for it, but his math wasn't too good and he was like "take it, it's too much work to get the ones we almost never see converted"...and I'm thinking..."this coin is worth over a dollar, which is at least four riyal...well, dad will dig it"), 1 UAE Dirham, 1 Franc he had sitting in a drawer, and a few riyals worth of .50, .25, and .10 riyal coins (13, 6.5, and 3.25 cents, respectively), half of which he just flat gave me because they don't even bother with them (and they had been sitting in his drawer for some time as a result). These silly 5-star hotels always round up and never give change that includes coins...

    Anyhow, I'm flying back tonight. I might hit the gift shop, but I don't think they have a shemak (sp?), ehgall, or thobe available here. I really wanted a set, too.

    Talk to you all again either in Zurich or once I'm back home tomorrow evening.

    Back in the US, in case nobody noticed.

    I'll be out of town from mid-day tomorrow until Wednesday next week. I should have reliable internet access, but I'll rarely be about, especially on Tuesday.
