Note: I’m not in the picture. I was on the boat from which the picture was taken.
The happy, smiling people you see before you are students of NTI. This was taken back in 2009, when we went to the Sawadi Beach on an outing!
This nightmare came to me 3 weeks ago (the latest I can remember at the moment)
In my nightmare I saw myself sleeping in a sprawled position. You know, all the limbs miles apart. Then, as if viewing all this from a camera, the “scene” zoomed out, and I saw a huge cloaked figure standing hunched over me, as if trying to get a better look. Everything was still, as if a screenshot taken to advertise a new upcoming film. After what seemed likes ages the “camera” shook violently and I woke up, only to find myself lying in the exact same position. What’s more, in my nightmare I saw my water bottle fallen on the ground, and when I woke up it was in the exact same place.
It gave me the creeps. Did it to you?
Of all the titles I could’ve come up with, I went with this one? Anyway, Day 1 is complete and, if conditions are good, then Day 2 will start in just a few hot hours. Hot is right, because in Oman, it’s always hot… well, we do get the occasional rain but other than that, it’s hot 24/7. But mind you, it’s not that hot that your mouth goes parch every few seconds and you melt from your sweat and everything that you seem to touch is blazing. It’s more of a nice sort of a hot. Something that you will get adjusted to and will start to like it after a few minutes when you get used to it. Anyway, enough chit-chat:
Day 1 wasn’t memorable apart from the fact that almost everyone who passed smiled at me, a father with his two kids agreed to let me take his picture and one guy actually thought I work for a magazine. I’m half-way there already. I’m giving you my Facebook link and should any problems occur, let me know and enjoy!
