Life in Dubai

Well looks like my Libyan/Tunisian trip of this week has been postponed to the next. However it's Wednesday and our flights this Sunday are still waitlisted. The last thing I want to do is to arrange all our meetings only to have to cancel them again like I had to do last week. Its been a busy hectic week. But busy in the good sense. Busy with a sense of purpose and a feeling of self worth.
End of October its North Africa, 2nd week November its India, and Egypt with the boss early December. Then come 19th December its that flight home. Singapore Airlines this time thank God.

We got a vessel into charter for Libya yesterday and although it was largely due to the brokers efforts, I still feel pretty good about it.

I had a parking lesson today. What I find frustrating is the language barrier that ocassionally crops up. I think I'm doing what the instructor is telling me to do and when I get it wrong, he doesn't (or cannot) tell me what exactly I'm doing wrong. I think it is actually up to me to gauge where I have gone wrong and then deviate a little from his instructions to get it closer to getting it right.

Personal life all fixed, driving lessons ongoing and a more sense of purpose at work. At least I am beginning to get somewhere now.
