happy thanksgiving from algeria

well, another turkey day wasted working. only good thing is today and tomorrow i get double-time-and-a-half. that means the 20 hour i work between today and tomorrow equals 50 hours pay which of course is more than a normal workweek. the money isn't worth it, but it takes away the sting a bit. at least last year i could share the holidays with emma. still, the chef in the canteen this morning said "if you are american, happy thanksgiving". it was an unexpected and pleasant surprise. there is only about 5-6 americans on the site, mostly from the customers headquarters in houston. i'm hoping we might actually get a turkey dinner, but not get TOO excited. we have beef and chicken daily. last sunday we had great steak, and two days back, prime rib cooked to order. it's not so bad.

i hope you are all having a wondrful day with your family, and hopefully i'll be home soon.
