Day three in Kuwait!

Published 7:45am Tuesday, November 8, 2011

Hello readers! Today I’ve worked on my two profile stories, this time I got a soldier who’s from Lake Mills and one who’s from Austin. Then I’ll have a feature with photos on the housing that soldiers have and how they personalize it. If I have enough time to write it, I may have a short story with photos about how the mail room works.

Today I saw a cat! I was pretty surprised because I was interviewing a soldier who saw something and jumped up scared, so of course I jumped up too. It turned out to be a cat, but the soldier said they are often diseased so it’s a good idea to stay away from them. If you know me you know I don’t like cats that much anyway so I wasn’t about to go up and pet it. It was interesting seeing it as a wild animal living on the base. I haven’t seen any cool bugs at all, just flies. I’ve seen some birds and soldiers talk about seeing bats once in a while.

After dinner I’m going to take some photos of a football game that some guys play out at the softball fields so look for photos in the near future!
