We’ve seen some new faces around recently. Some Estonians (they wear the German camoflage pattern in desert colors) and Lithuanians arrived a few weeks ago. Both units include a few women officers. I think I spotted at least one Italian, and the French seem to have acquired some desert-tone camoflage. Fortunately, everyone sports their national flag on the left shoulder, often with the country name as well.
At dinner last night, whilest standing in line at the British dining facility’s Curry Bar, I spotted a half-dozen troops from Jordan, sporting spiffy new fatigues in an entirely new (and very nice looking) desert digital pattern.
Also, there’s a new shop on the Boardwalk – it sells and rents bicycles. Now that all the main streets are paved, we’re seeing more bikes around.
