Baking in Kuwait

Trip so far has gone smooth (well except for discovering that my laptop issue I thought was fixed isn't).

My 12-hour layover in London was fun. I was able to ride the London Eye (biggest ferris wheel in the world), see Big Ben, Parliament, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's Cathedral, Churchill's underground WWII bunker, and Buckingham Palace. Next time maybe I'll have enough time to actually go inside them...lol. I'll post some pics when I get back to Iraq (hopefully tomorrow).

FYI...Kuwait's high today is supposed to be 134!!!

Editor's Update: At the 4am (Thursday morning) roll call, I found out that there is only one flight to Baghdad "today" (it is actually at 1:30am tonight, Friday morning). There are also only 50 seats available. I'm currently 56 on the list, so unless six people miss the 1830 roll call and are bumped from the list and no one else is added above me (all very unlikely), it looks like I'll be here in Kuwait for another full day, possibly two. Oh well...at least they have Mickey D's =)

How cool. I never have cool layovers at Airports. My layovers consist of rushing to the other plane that seem to always be a the other end of the airport and barely making it
