Does anyone have any sage advice for poor X?

He is hanging out his shingle in the sands of the mid-east after a decade of decadence in Vodkaberg. As far as I know, ye cannae drink a dram in the mideast.

I don't think he is going to like Saudi at all... what a culture shock this will be... from extreme cold to extreme heat... not to mention the lack of booze and *ladies.*

I love ETX. In a purely non-sexual way, most of the time.

He's a credit to the profession.

Let's hope he changes his mind about this:

"Judging from a bit of google searching, however, a LOT of people blog about their experiences within Saudi Arabia and don't have much trouble with it."

And, regarding this:
"I wonder what the Saudi Government does with all that sh*t from their guest workers. . . "

His next wonder will be what the guest workers do with all the sh*t from the Saudis.

But he sounds like a very good guy, and I hope his Saudi experience goes well for him. Who knows - he might have come to the Kingdom from "Vodkaberg, in provincial Russia, where I debauched for nine years."
it's possible he might leave the Kingdom undebauched and a teetotaler.
I did.
