We have decided that the boat trip thing would best be left until the summer - not a bad idea. Therefore I thought we can all go ten pin bowling this saturday afternoon. Anybody whos interested, let me know by wednesday and I will book up a few lanes.
For this months activity I thought we could hire a canal party boat and go cruising for an evening around Birmingham. Obviously to make this worth while would depend on the number of people who want to go.
Having had an excellent nights sleep I awoke refreshed and energised. I think it must have been really early because I lazed in bed for hours before getting up but still managed to get up at least 25 minutes before we were due to start our walking.
Amazingly I was up before Lucy & April even.
Ali was cooking omlettes for breakfast which, washed down with what I presume is non traditional Bedouin Nescafe coffee, were very nice.
Everyone apart from Lucy and April had clearly been up for hours, already had breakfast and were all packed up and ready for the off.
So I have been here for two weeks now, the first week was having follow up language training, I've got lots of words in my head at the moment but conjugating the verbs when I speak hasn't quite clicked yet. There are six of us from Birmingham living in different parts of the city with different people from all over the place.
A landslide has destroyed the railway line our cheap Chiltern Lines train ticket was valid for so instead we got to travel on the much quicker Virgin Train to Euston.
Lucy and I were very excited on the train and spent a long time discussing the various things we had brought with us in an attempt to catch one another out with some vital item the other had forgotten. Lucy won this as I realised I forgotten both my sunhat and sunglasses. I resolved to buy these things during the large amounts, doubtless, of free time we would have in Jordan inbetween the trekking.
I used to have two computers, the motherboard on one of them destroyed its self ( most probably under the weight of dust from the carpet near where it was forced to live ) and the other one was becoming gradually more and more erratic - having to pick it up and drop it on the floor is not an ideal way to get it to work.
