Half moon over Kuwait

Just arrived in Kuwait City after 30 hours of travel from Mogadishu. I am sooo happy I brought my trusty Argentine stove top coffee maker out of retirement for this trip. #coffee

In case you’ve been wondering why this has been a quiet week for me. These signs are all over the place.

Horace Dall (1901-1986) of Luton, England made the inaugural overland journey through the Sprengisandur wilderness of Iceland by bicycle in 1933.  Along the way he kept a photo journal of his trials and tribulations with written descriptions on the backs of the photos.  One that seems to describe the journey well is, 

"The first day gave a taste of the rough stuff - rocks, gullies, sand and swamps, and I quickly realised that my hopes of making thirty percent use of the bicycle were to be disappointed."

Mr. Dall traveled with no tent, just a sleeping bag to protect him from the elements.  For nutrition he carried very simple foods including sucrose and pemmican.  His only assistance along the journey came at the very start where he made use of a boat to cross the large river putting him into the wilderness.  From there it was a seven day trip, five days of which he saw no one else.

People who truly love us can be divided into two categories: those who understand us, and those who forgive us our worst sins. Rarely do you find someone capable of both.
