Back Home in Washington

I've been back for a few days and am enjoying being on American soil. I went to fly the Boeing 757 Sim for Costco which went very well, I've always wanted to see what it would be like to fly one of the big planes. Unfortunately I received a call a few days later and let me know that they are going to hire a woman for the position, which of course was another huge surprise being that I came off my contract early and thought I already had the job. I asked them if there was anything I could have done differently, to which they replied no and they'll see me in another position there when one becomes available in the future. All of this was very confusing to me. Anyway, I have accepted a position with SP in Hayward, CA and am very happy with their offer. I hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas... These pics are from the Murphy Christmas Party. Their was a Mexican theme and by the end of the night we were getting into Chris's stash of funny coats.

Flying around the middle east.

We have primarily been flying around Saudi Arabia and to Dubai. Our plane has had a number of issue's therefore we have been here in Dubai for about five days again. One night we could not find rooms anywhere and ended up at an unbelievable hotel called Raffles. It resembles a pyramid and may be one of the nicest rooms I've stayed in on this trip. I should be heading back around the 12th.
