The Long Road to Work

Commuting to work in Wafra Field (PNZ, KUWAIT) involves a rather pleasant (but boring) drive thru the desert. No traffic at all. Just a nice, straight, flat road (no potholes). About 57 kilometers EACH way taking about 40 minutes of drive time. Not much scenery along the way - except for a few camels, sheep or goats. Lately I've been playing an audio book which helps to pass the time (radio offers few enjoyable stations; most play Arabic music - no interest to me!) I leave home at 6:15 am and arrive at work at 7 am. I leave work usualy after 3:30 pm and get home sometime after 4 pm. I find this driving to be much less stressful than my daily commute in Houston which affords much more traffic and road hazards (and offensive drivers).

Here, now you have two! But that is a cool picture though and I love chemistry so I guess I'll be stopping by to read some more!
