Morning in Al Anbar province

Wonder if this photo'll ever come through, took it the other morning on my way to breakfast. Due to our limited bandwidth, I've been having problems downloading. Okay, good.

At night there is often a glow in the distance, either of trash burning or sometimes (like last night) a firefight in the distance. It might have been training, but not confirmed yet. There wasn't outgoing fire at the time, so it's possible.

Anyhow, out here is a peculiar mix of desert and agriculture. Went through the local city nearby, it was almost a nice place... that which hadn't been leveled by the Marines. Further west is just vast desert. Still, the sand is everywhere, gets in everything.

Going home in less than a week due to an odd leave arrangement. Didn't have time to arrange other more extensive trips and besides, next year my stateside travel will be limited. We'll see what happens, won't we!
