Carroll of Arabia

My friends Sean and Ruth Carroll are still alive in Yemen. In a recent email, Sean wrote, "There's a small desert behind our apartment (go figure). It takes about an hour to cross, so we wander in it from time to time, and sometimes climb the mountains on the other side. Camels also wander the desert, free-range. I try to talk to them, but they're snobs... " I'm happy to see they are having an adventurous time. In my last post about them, I said that Sean hates olives so he wouldn't survive well in the Middle East, but he has informed me that he now likes olives. I personally could eat olives all day long, washed down by extra virgin olive oil. Below is a picture of our hero in his new backyard. (For a soundtrack for this picture click here.)
