Plans

Well I picked up my plane tickets yesterday from the travel agent which means I'll finally be leaving for the US on sunday night!
I'll be heading off to New Jersey first where Ill stay with my uncle for a week. And then I'll be off to Texas to meet my other uncle (aaah its so good when u have family to depend on:p).
After this I'll head off to Arizona where I'm slated to attend a 5 week workshop at Arcosanti near the city of Phoenix!
I finally decided to go this year instead of the next because, well, the founder of Arcosanti, Paolo Soleri just turned 87! Yea he's an old geezer and I wanna make sure I catch him before he decides to take his permanent trip to Davy Jones locker(Ahhrr me matey!)

Ok so maybe I was being a little mean but hey I do have a point:p

Have you ever noticed when you travel abroad to some developed nation, how friends and family give you these lists of stuff they want you to bring back for them? Hehe yea I know all toooo well.

Anyways, I still have to pack my things (havent even started), and buy any necessary stuff that I'll need to take with me plus make sure my passport and plane tickets are all in order.

I just hope I don't get jet-lag:S

LOL @ the lists.
Bs jet lag there is ok, becuase you get over it fast, since theres all ways soo much to do and what not.
I hardly ever feel it.
But when I get back to saudi...it hits me HARD.
Will probably be the same case with you. 3l 3umoom..HAVE FUN!

Personal tip (may or may not work with you!):

Sleep on the plane when flying west. Don't sleep flying back east. Generally, don't sleep when you arrive. Force yourself to follow a normal schedule the day you arrive =) Hope it helps!

Well ya know it isnt exactly easy to not fall asleep as ill be spending 5 hours just going to frankfurt first and then another 3 to NY.
Nonetheless I'll try it out. Thanks for the tips!
