I haven't quite figure the IZ out yet...
Where I live is relatively nice, if a little bit crowded compared to where I have previously been. There are, ironically, very few services available. There is almost nowhere to do anything or get anything...but it almost doesn't matter. Why? The insane working hours.
In the command I work for, people are basically 'at the office' all the time. We get in sometime in the morning, moderately early - and don't get out until quite late. On Friday, when everyone else is off in the morning, we are still in. Most other groups that work where I do don't put in the same hours, but I wonder what they do in the time they do have...?
I hope to not appear to be complaining - the food here is excellent, we have only had one 'incoming' and it is a nice change to be in an office compared to where I have been. I just can't quite figure this place out just yet.
UPDATE: I found another new reason to like being up here... Forecast for Basrah 120 degrees, forecast for Baghdad 117. HA!
