I’ve gotten a lot of interest about my latest Siege, considering I’ve been pretty much off the radar the last fortnight. So I’ll debrief you guys…
Where were you?
The Levant: an area that, historically, roughly corresponds to greater Syria. In the modern day, it encompasses:
Who were the crew?
At one stage we were four strong. I was joined by Gecko, Dan the man, and one other.
Check out the pic to the right. They were a blast.
What were the Highlights?
Syria: Walking around old town Damascus as Mexican pirates – getting got up in pro-Assad demonstrations in the meantime. It was fucked up.
Lebanon: New flag. I met a beautiful, sexy Arabic girl – who subsequently fulfilled my ultimate fantasy by dressing up as a belly dancer and giving me an unforgettable erotic performance before mounting me. Best. Lover. Ever.
Jordan: Highlight was defo dressing up in traditional costume, renting a horse and racing Dan across the mountainous plateaus above Petra. My horse was going so fast we nearly rode of a cliff. What a rush.
Jerusalem: Exploring Old Town. Getting my history on.
Any low lights?
Amman nightlife was brutal. Although I did take a cutie out on a date my last night, the scene was so sedated we decided to skip across the border to Jerusalem for our last night.
That was followed by my second low light – witnessing Israeli occupation and settlement building in the West Bank – and dealing with Zionist bigotry in the process. It was depressing. A dark history does not justify apartheid. I hope the 1967 borders are honoured some day. But anyway…
So what now?
I’m up to 77 countries (including Palestine), meaning my goal towards global conquest is now 39% complete.
This week I start my second semester for my masters, so I’m stuck at home for a good while. Although I might be popping over the Amsterdam later this month…
I got a few city guides for guys to look forward to a few stories and cailíns in the pipeline.
Until the next Siege…
