Wafra Lunch

I got a call the other day, I was invited for a lunch in Wafra with some friends. I thought why not especially in this beautiful weather. As soon as I got on the road it was a drizzle and then it turned into a full on monsoon on the drive to Wafra.

I called for directions since I knew I would pass the turn, I was counting the numbers of turns and then suddenly the road was upon me as I was flying past it. I made a quick stop and made the turn, luckily there weren’t that many cars on the road.

The best part about these long drives is enjoying the music I had, it really is an enjoyable drive especially when you have the right kind of music.

I managed to find the compound pretty easily, especially after entering the wrong one the first time around and it turned out to be a family there instead of my friends so I quickly backed out of the their before heading to the next camp. It was perfect and they had different tents for different uses which was very practical. The best part was the duwa which was filled with coal and warm and crispy by the time I was close to it.

The lunch was very good, and the company was even better. There is something about being in the desert that is just very different then anything else.

    Lovely pix alright, seems like the only thing that’s changed in Wafra since my time with Aminoil in 1960 is the road there. That is nice.
