A needed day off
I had the day off from work today. Not that there is much to do, but being new helps. There is really no way to go outside the wire. The only way out is through the Baghdad International Air Port better known as BIAP. I took some picture of just my surroundings today.

Today I slept in and went and got coffee at the Green Bean. I did my workout looked at the shops and got my laundry. We get free laundry service at Victory. It will most likely not be as nice at Tallil but similar. Most people try to get into a routine with their days to make the time go by faster. I am still trying to find my routine and get used to everything. A standard work day is 12 hours long and 6 days a week. The work helps the time go by. I have been working out in the gym every other day. The people here say you can go two ways. You can either bench press 250 lbs when leave or you can weigh 250 lbs when you leave. I think I will try to keep working out.
