I’ve bought another horse, this time for 10 pounds, which is not dear. The first one has turned out excellently, and I think this one is even better. In this transaction I did not seek the advice of the Kaimmakam, the Binbashi, the Imam or the Kadi.
A fall Of 30 from the daytime temperature isn’t bad. The dates are all yellow; they will be ripe very shortly. It interests me immensely coming into this country from this direction, which I have never done before. Now it remains to be seen whether they find a job for me or send me away without delay. Here is the letter about my summer clothes.

Whether he was there because he liked it, or whether he was there by mistake, I don’t know. He looked quite happy, but if ever he wanted to lie down, he would have to walk for days-it is slow going-to find a dry place to lie on. The Ark and all the rest become quite comprehensible when one sees Mesopotamia in flood time. You will tell me, won’t you, if you think I ought to come home. I should have to go a long way back to tell you how many gaps there were to fill.
- Wherever one goes one finds lines and lines of waiters arranging tables.
- I edged away from what seemed to me delicate ground by asking how many sons he had.
- Far the nicest people who I have met are the MacMahons with whom I dined last night.
- He received us with all courtesy, but it was only pretence.
The last kelek load was the donkey, bound hand and foot, with Fattuh sitting on his head and one of the muleteers on his tail. Two of the ferrymen stripped naked and got on to the 2 bare-backed mares–the others were driven in behind them and I watched, with my heart in my mouth, while the rushing water swept them down. They all clambered out safely on the other side.

After waking several times I had to get up and put on all my clothes. Namoud appeared after breakfast we had our maps–but my next three or four days Journey appears on no map–and stated exactly how I should get to the Jebel Druze. I am now waiting for my Arab guide and praise be to God! I think I have slipped through the fingers of the Government a second time. It was delightful having a day in camp with this wonderful plain stretched out before me like the sea. Namoud knows every Sheikh of all the Bedouin for miles and miles round, and we had lots of interesting talks about them.
The valley ended in A wide, open plain, set round with fantastically riven hills black and rusty red as the volcanic stone had weathered. The light crept round them as we marched across the plain. They stood in companies watchin us, and in the silence and eptiness were extraordinarily sinister. Suddenly Sayyâh called out “There is smoke.” A tall spire of smoke wavered against a black hillock. I must tell you that we were waterless and thirsty–the camels had not drunk for four days. We were not at all sure when we should find water, neither did we know in the leasft what Arabs had kindled the fire whose smoke we watched, but the consensus of opinion was that it was a ghazu–raiders.
Although, here’s to hoping they will come out with more flavours soon. White Claw Surge will be available nationwide from November 14 at bottle stores and bars. Nearly all the fish Mitch’s serves is either caught by in-house or by fishermen almost exclusively from San Diego or northern Baja waters.
