Eighty-four dollars later, my documents are on their way to South Korea. Wow.
My bosses took me out to lunch today to celebrate my rapidly approaching departure. Tomorrow is my last day, but since I work from home, I won't be seeing all three of my bosses again in the morning. Today was the last day I'd see two of them, and so naturally, I cried. I think it's pretty safe to say that I'll be crying at least once a day for the next two weeks. Luckily, my emotions have outstanding elasticity. I cried at lunch, but I nearly hugged the mailman when he gave my my background check. Some might call that bipolar. I call it being a girl.
In other news, Ben signed for Saudi today. He'll be leaving in a little over a month, so I've started doing some research. I don't know a lot about the middle east, but since my friend is going there, I thought I'd look into it a bit. Here's what I've learned so far:
There's a lot of sand. It's everywhere. Ben, when you're bored, will you please build one of these?
Camels. So I don't have any sources to back this up, but I'm pretty certain that life in the middle east revolves around camels. People keep them as pets, they're the most acceptable mode of transportation, and I think may even be involved in international negotiations. This guy certainly is.
That's about as far as I got in my research before I just started watching this video. It's really the most comprehensive compilation of middle eastern fun facts available. You're welcome, everyone. You're all a little smarter now.
