About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

The Souq in Jeddah



This is the old Souq, the least touristy one we've been to during our tour. You really get the Third World feel here. The sights, sounds, smells, the energy. I like to stand among the hundreds of people making their way and just soak it all in. You don't get the same feel at the typical suburban mall.

Except maybe the day after Thanksgiving.
