They are also walking softly with respect to other middle eastern projects they are involved with.
Thanks - though the vacation plans have totally gotten screwed up, so we
are trying to rearrange something for later this year, perhaps
August/September. Not sure, because tropical laziness is sort of out, I
hate roasting. Maybe a bit later, October in Florida isn't too toasty
and we could do Universal for the new Potterverse section, and Key West.
I have been keeping CNN on as background noise. I am seriously flashing
on the various civil wars in the vorkosiverse. I agree with Heinlein
that adventures are best read about rather than lived - I really would
not want to be [most] American tourists stuck there right now.
Although Rob did point out that knowing me, I would probably just pop on
appropriate clothing, veiling and pop out the kitchen entrance, and head
out of town, probably south and then to the Red Sea. I have an odd knack
for blending in to local populations. I just think of it as being very
good with applied kinesthetics and a certain liking for blending in. I
already have salwar kameez sets I wear, all I would be needing is the
outer clothing, which I would have bought when we first arrived. [Local
clothing tends to be worn specifically because of local climate. I have
noted that the proper levantine clothing is quite comfortable in very
hot dry weather.]
