Back to the Tower of Babil  
Since our new Squadleader hasn't seen the area, we showed him Sadam's palace yesterday and the Tower of Babil today. I ran to the top as fast as i could with my IBA on. Talk about a work out, lol! Pretty much as soon as everyone got there, it started raining. Big fat rain. It felt so crisp. I love it when i'm gunning and it rains! Afterwards i smell like a dog, but i still love it.

Odegard found some stones with cuniform on them. They're pretty neat to look at. Anyways.. here are the pics (some from the first trip).

The tower is beautiful and so historic. Be glad you've visited there. :)

Yikes at your last post about the fire. Good no one was hurt.

well you're there for a while, so you should get the chance...eventually. man, its good to hear from you buddy ole pal. i check your journal every day, and when there's no new post i get sad (sad face) and when there is, i get happy (and dance about the place).

i'm so sick...i think i'm gonna die. and i have to write a final for my anthropology class: how do i think the civilizations in America would have evolved had the European conquest not happened? YEAH...a lot of work. its something way fun to talk about when you're drunk...especially if you've had sociology and history and psychology, but when you have to write it all down = not fun!

sorry about the rant. glad everything's ok. you sexy desert stud, you

Tower of Babil
Hi Sean! It's about time I post a comment. It's always a relief to see your posts and to know that you are alright. What an adventure to see the actual tower of Babil!! Weird to see a world history monument and not a single Park Ranger in sight. But with you guys there it's definitely Babeylonia (hardeharhar).
Another package with mail and goodies is in the making, so be on the lookout for it!
