I have not taken any photos of the recent developments…. This, I hope, will be my last of the old batch (I still have a few but will not blog them here). I will soon get out there (once the dust storms are gone) and get a fresh supply.
The sewage tanker in the photograph drives around selling his services. As disgusting as it sounds it is one of the most important jobs in the area to sustain it until the services are completed.
Whether you live in Mangaf or have visited someone there you will know for a fact that the image currently on Google Earth is quite out of date. In fact I live in a house in Block 1 and the whole cluster of houses in my immediate area including mine appear as sand!
I post this picture and will, god willing, one day refer back to this with a more up-to-date version.
If you look on the coastline, the Hilton resort is clearly visible.
This is what it’s made of…. I’m not sure how much cement we use for each house but this a familiar site next to new projects…. Schools, shops and of course houses.
