Sorry I haven’t posted in the last week. The internet over here is brutal.
Sorry what has the Nomad been up to???
Well you know I love dodgy places so I’m in Damascus, Syria with two other crewmembers.
This place is AWESOME!!!
Ok the nightlife is kinda shit, and they’re are dozens of people supposedly getting killed everyday…. but the beer is cheap, the girls are cute and we have beautiful old town all to ourselves. It’s amazing…. the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world apparently.
The locals here love Mexican Pirates. Even cars stop in the middle of the road and call out,
“Welcome to Syria!”
More interestingly, every single person we spoke to actually support President Assad – and these were very educated, travelled people. We were even present for pro-government demonstrations (and got them on camera).
I’m not sticking up for the regime, I’m just giving you the reality of popular opinion on the streets of Damascus. There is obvious bias of the foreign media. You really don’t know what’s going on in a country until you actually go there.
That said, reports from outside the country say over 100 were killed here in the last two days. I woke to the drone of helicopters… it feels like a fucking war zone.
Anyway, aside for that, let me tell you about own little uprising. In case you wondering – yes, don’t worry, I’ve still found time to be a little naughty as usual. I’ve slain my first Arab and got my Lebanese flag in the process!!! She fell for my pirate charm.. ARGHHH! Not only that, but she may be the most beautiful women I’ve ever been with (but I’m bias towards the Arabic look).
Ah… the Siege of the Levant is going well..
Sex, War and Piracy… a favourite Naughty Nomad cocktail.
