Jacob's doing well. He's settled into life in Kuwait where they'll be for the next couple/few weeks. I can't imagine that living in a tent with 35 other people is fun, but he seems to be doing fine. He's able to call once a day or so although they've been busy with classes and acclimating to the weather/time change. I think the highlight of Kuwait has been the DFAC (dining facility) with the free Baskin Robbins and Krispy Kremes. Here are a couple of pictures of where he is right now.
The tents that they're living in now. They're in the middle of the desert so all of the electricity comes from generators and the water has to be trucked in.
The bunkered Starbucks! :)
