I really hope the Columbia’s ISSO has a very good reason for choosing fax over email to receive my documentation. Using a fax was a pain.

As if it’s not enough that Saudi media are awful, they now do this thing where they republish the dumbest stuff they find on the web.

It’s raining dogs and cats in Hofuf.
It was only an ’opeless fancy
It passed like an ’Ipril dye
But a look an’ a word an’ the dreams they stirred
They ’ave stolen my ’heart away

Arrived safely to Hofuf. Had a punctured tire after leaving Riyadh. Now watching al-Hilal v al-Nassr, and filling my US visa application.
Typical. So typical. What was I thinking, really?
How perfect everything could be…
