Next door to the left, the Tunisians continue to express their discontent. Next door to the right, the Egyptians have begun to express theirs.
Your humble Captain is stuck in the middle. The Libyans are no better off than their neighbours and they have exactly the same complaints.
It will be interesting to see if it kicks off here.
I just hope they wait until 4pm on Thursday. By then I will have taken off and hopefully I will be on my second G&T.
They shut down the airport here for the slightest of reasons and I am buggered for a land option. I do not want to head south and then west across the desert to get into Algeria. I have been arrested there before and I have no desire to repeat the experience. Without the right papers it is a given. Unlike British gaols, they do not feed you. Your family has to bring food in. I can confirm that I have no family there. On the upside, I may lose a few pounds....
EDIT: Sue tells me that Algeria is no good. The peasants are revolting there too.
That leaves Niger, the Central African Republic or Sudan. (The dodgy half of Sudan).
Please keep your fingers crossed for me until then.
