My cousin went to Libya two weeks before all hell broke loose in there. He was deployed there to work as a nurse in a hospital in Tripoli. We were of course happy that he will finally be able to go abroad and work as a nurse as there’s a surplus of registered nurses here and it is extremely difficult to get a job. When he left we were also happy because he left us some of his stuff which became our new toys, like this desk top I’m using right now and his other ipod and blackberry phone. The only thing he didn’t entrust us with was his nikon rifle scope which he left in the care of his girlfriend’s dad who is also a collector of nikon rifles.
The week before last week, he called up his girlfriend to say that they are okay and that he did not sign up for the voluntary evacuation as they are okay. And last week I still had a chance to talk to him via YM and he once again told us he’s okay. Now that Kadafi has issued a warning that they will definitely declare war once the US decides to meddle with the situation it got us all the more worried. And yesterday he called his girlfriend to say that they don’t have internet access again, you could just imagine how worried we are. I just hope things get better and well, as the cliche goes, please help us pray for world peace.
