Wednesday October 7th, 1998

October 7th was the last day of a 2-week holiday Paul had planned to spend in Greece with a friend from the Far East. The friend, who Paul had not seen for several years, had become very anti-American in the interim. The day after sharing some cocaine his friend left for home after a heated argument about the United States and its foreign policy that dissolved their friendship. Paul left the following day for home in Abu Dhabi and was stopped by customs agents who had been alerted to look for the cocaine vial secretly stowed in his luggage. That lead to his incarceration for 1001 days in the hell hole of Al Wathba prison located in the desert between Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia.
