Hello everybody! These are pictures from the Schlumberger Year End Party (a.k.a Christmas Party. It's a muslim country!). Anyway, we had a blast sand surfing, riding camels, and generally partying down. Enjoy!
MEA held it's year end party in December. A great time was had by all. Busses came to pick us up at the Trade Center and carted us off to a secluded desert area near Al Awir. There we were met by 4x4's and we roared off over the dunes to our desert encampment......
|Here's a view of the camp from the dune overlooking the camp. As you an see, several tents were setup and refreshing drinks were served. Then the fun started....|

|Everyone enjoying a cool drink before dinner.|
|Guy Bennett and wife Carole caught by the camera's eye.|
|What goes up, comes down. Rindala Homsi rides the 'sand' snow board down the hill.|
|One false move, and look what happens! Great fun, but sand gets everywhere,|
|Rowena Rodericks rides the camel.|
|Trude Toubia and Esperanza Abadi take a turn.|
|After the camel ride, how about some Shesha? Ann D'Souza and Fleur D'costa try the tasty apple tobacco.|
|"OK, so what's this end doing so high? No body warned me about this!" Janet Kolstad and Beckett Boyd take a turn|
|And now for the belly dancer.....
Chris Lenn seems to be enjoying the lesson, but Ken Bell is having no part of it!
|Joe Schulz shows that the 'more experienced' guys can sand board. He even adds a little bit of style to the trip!|
Until next year!
