I arrived in Tripoli in late afternoon of March 30, 2010. As the airplane was descending to land, the color of the clouds changed from white to orange. A ghibli (dust storm from the Sahara to the south) had blown in, and the air was full of dust. The temperature was warm for this time of year, about 38C, or 100 degrees F. Usually it doesn't get there until June or so; but as one guy put it, the wind from the Sahara feels just like a blow dryer. The next day was significantly cooler and clearer, with bright sunshine. So far I have only been to the hotel and to work, but I have rested, gotten organized, and feel recovered from the trip; no more jet lag! I am staying at the Bustan Hotel in the western part of Tripoli, and it is very comfortable.

Remember Sherri, you are here to work. No hanging out by the pool or enjoying delicious foods.
