Back in Portland

On my last night in Alexandria I met up again with Mohammed, and finally got to meet the third brother, the somewhat reclusive Ali. We had dinner in a seafood restaurant and I got to hear Ali's perspective on events in Iraq. He's getting his US citizenship soon and he's very excited about it.

Bunny was supposed to arrive from SF this morning but she's a little under the weather so her arrival will be slightly delayed. That's actually a bit of a relief for me, as much as I'm looking forward to seeing her, because I need a little more time to get the house cleaned up and take care of shopping and other routine chores. Hopefully we'll be able to get her on a flight later today.
