Idle hands....

Ahhh! It's been a long time. But first of all, lemme thank those pals who kept sending mails asking about me and pushing me for publishing new posts. To be quite honest, my recent postings were controversial and arguable. More readers were dropping in as you can figure that from the site meter located at the bottom of this webpage. That's why I decided to look for spicy hot topics to post. Actually, I have several issues to talk about but I can't post anyone. Actually, I'm not feeling good these days. I don't have the enthusiasm to do blogging like before. Many reasons keep me blue and I don't want to mention them. You may all know that Melantrys did show up in Damascus last June. I had to play the role of a tour guide for that German lady. It wasn't her first time here in the middle east, she's been in Amman last year but unfortunately I couldn't make it to Jordan last year as I had a lot of work to do for my college's summer courses. Both of us were excited to see each other in person but we couldn't managed to arrange a meeting at that time. And then, I left Iraq ahead to Syria to join my family. I decided to make some money to visit new countries and spend the my summer vacation. Of course, I didn't think about going to Europe or the States cuz they would cost me so much money I can't afford. Therefore and as a beginning I thought about going to either Turkey or Lebanon. I cancelled the idea to go to Jordan. Iraqis living in Syria have some troubles that prevent them to cross the Jordanian borders. Jords suck!I told Mel about my projects and she said that she was ok to head for Turkey rather than Lebanon. Anyway, things went out in the opposite direction of my plans. Read Mel's posting,,, to know more about it. I couldn't believe myself when Mel told me that she would visit Damascus this summer. Earlier, she didn't like the idea of spending her vacation in Syria and I think you know why. She is na├»ve like most of the westerns who are being hypnotized by the media. Lol, I'm kidding. No offence! And here comes my turn, I was on a new mission! I must manage to find a lodging, plus I should find out about those travelers’ cheques.
