It appears I'm taking a new assignment. Some misgivings about the biking though

Sounds a bit rough out there
Take care.

I notice that the article refers to a traffic accident a couple of times. It was murder, not an accident.

Possibly a couple of years
However, I came to Bahrain for a couple of years, and it's been 8 here so far
The assignment offer is 'cos I took a Masters qualification in "Training across Cultures", so that's what I've been doing, mainly Middle East Oil.
Bahrain, sadly, has gone a bit unpredictable, but then another offer from a co. that sounds keen came in.
Couple more years and a retirement policy does what it's supposed to!

Just please stay safe whatever you do Wog. I have enough to worry about with my brother being in urban combat familiarization school then deploying to Afghanistan with an Infantry unit as an adviser. Watch yer six dude, watch yer six!

Thanks, all, for your concern

Mr qc - your brother is in harms way for service. I'm just taking an office and training room job, for my own choice. No comparison. I trust he keeps safe

I might have to do some more garage cycling on a trainer!

Best wishes, all
