It's good to see Rick again and I've been anxious to pick up the things I left with him while I toured Europe and the Middle East. He looks more pale with new worry lines on his face these days though. He has apparently had some trouble with his import business and he may have gotten involved with the wrong people unwittingly. I found out years later that later that winter that he was nearly blown apart in a failed car bombing and ended up spiriting his wive and daughter away to Canada and the US with mafiosos hot on his trail - finally losing them somewhere in the Toronto airport.
When I was here last, it was nighttime virtually all the time - three hours of weak daylight at most. Now it's just the opposite and I have difficulty sleeping in the bright 3 am sunshine.
