Two astronomers. Separated by only 22 degrees, 58 minutes of latitude, 33 degrees, 29 minutes of longitude, yet seemingly worlds apart. Their common goal: figure out the very nature of the Universe and its womenfolk.

Hey buddy - great post. I was really hoping you'd put some pictures up at some point. Has been hard to imagine what your daily life is like.

I ought to do a similar post showing the more mundane view from Durham!

Indeed, great pictures, nice to see the normal lives of people that you only see on tv when something terrible has happened.

Hi mate,

Really enjoying the Middle East posts, it's putting the rest of our blogs to shame!! How's the new job going? Have you settled in yet or is there still a lot of sorting stuff out to do!!


P.S. Have you heard any funny political jokes for the western boys back in blighty??!!

A priest comes to a rabbi and tells him: 'someone in my congregation none-the-less has blatantly stolen my bicycle during sunday mass. How can I convince the theif to return it?' The rabbi says: "next sunday, when your giving your sermon, recount the ten commandments, and when you get to THOU SHALL NOT STEAL examine the behaviour of your congregation. The thief will unwillingly expose himself.' A few days later the rabbi sees the priest and asks him if his plan worked. The priest says ' No one reacted when I said thou shalt not steal, but when I said thou shall not commit adultery I remembered where i left the bike.'
