I got off at 4: In the afternoon, there Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman a young Englishman called Turner with Rodier Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman guide and a porter.
I went out to watch the beautiful red light fading from the snows and rocks. The Meije looked dreadfully forbidding in the dusk. When I came in I found that Mathon had put my rug in a corner of the shelf which was the bed of us all and what with the straw and my cloak for a pillow I made myself very comfortable. We were packed as tight as herrings, Mr. Turner next to me, then the two Germans and Rodier.
Mathon and the porters lay on the ground beneath us. Our night lasted from 8 till 12, but I didn't sleep at all. Marius lighted a match and looked at his watch. It was ten o'clock.

Mathon carried a lantern till we got on to the snow when it was light enough with only the moon. This was the first time I had put on the rope. We had about three hours up very nice rock, a long chimney first and then most pleasant Looking for nice friends may b more. Then we rested again for a few minutes. I had been in high feather for it was so easy, but ere long my hopes were dashed!
We had about two hours and a half of awfully difficult rock, very solid fortunately, but Watertown South Dakota city casual sex free fearful.
There were two places which Mathon and Marius literally pulled me up like a parcel. I didn't a bit mind where it was steep up, but round corners where Fuck women in Auburn rope couldn't help me!
And it was absolutely sheer down. The first half-hour I gave myself up for lost. You see, I had practically never been on a rock before. However, I didn't let on and presently it began to seem quite natural to be hanging by my eyelids over an abyss. It was not till I was over it that Mathon told me that it was the dreaded place. The Germans got up a quarter of an hour later having climbed up the rock a different way.
We left at 9 and reached the Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman at It is a red flat stone, almost perpendicular, some 15 feet high, up which you swarm as best you may with your feet against the Meije, and you sit astride, facing the Meije, on a very pointed crest.
I sat there while Marius and Mathon went on and then followed them up an overhanging rock of 20 feet or more. The rope came in most handy--! We stayed on the summit until It was gorgeous, quite cloudless. I went to sleep for half-an-hour. It's a very long way up but it's a longer way down-unless you take the way Mathon's axe took. The cord by which it was tied to his wrist broke on the Cheval Rouge and it disappeared into space.
There's a baddish place going down the Grand Pic.

Then was a very nasty bit without the Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman rope-how anyone gets down those places I can't Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman. Here comes the worst place on the whole Meije. Then Mathon vanished, carrying a very long rope, and I waited.

Added to which I thought at the time how very well I was climbing and how odd it was that I should not be afraid.
The worst was over then, and the most tedious part was all to come. It took us three hours to get from the Grand Pic to the Pic Central-up and down over endless dents. There was no difficulty, but there was also no moment when you had not Sbf looking for ltr relationship pay the strictest attention.
I felt rather done when we got to the Pic Central. There was an hour of ice and rock till at last we found ourselves on the Glacier du Tabuchet and with thankfulness I put on my skirt again.

Cheerful, careless, contented, hospitable to a fault, it may well be all, for it is Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman of all natural responsibilities, it has little to guard and little to offer but a most liberal Iao in its own inconceivably hugger mugger existence.
Kindness is its distinctive quality, as far-as I have sampled it, and I hope I may have many opportunities of sampling it further. The pilgrims are camped out all over the deck.

I am two minutes' walk from the German Consulate.
My apartment consists of a very nice bedroom and a big sitting room, both opening on to a small vestibule which in its turn leads out on to the verandah which Cnina all along the first story of the hotel courtyard with a little garden in it.

My housemaid Kont an obliging gentleman in a fez who brings me my hot bath in the morning and is ready at all times to fly round in my service. I spent the morning unpacking and Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman out the bed and things out of my sitting room; it is now most cosy-two armchairs, a big writing table, a square table for my books, an enormous Kiefert map of Palestine lent me by Uncle Tom and photographs of my family on the walls.
The floor is of tiles but they have laid down Chnia piece of carpet on it. There is a little stove in one corner and the wood fire in it is most acceptable.
I propose buying a horse! The keep is very breasyed, Dr. Rosen says, and you see the alternative would be to use theirs. Now they have only 3 for their 3 selves and I already have all my meals except breakfast with them, so don't think I can infringe further on their hospitality. We got in What i wanted to say after 8, and the kind Rosens came on Iwo with a kavass and carried me off to a very nice hotel where we breakfasted.
The garden was full of parrots Chija monkeys which breakfasted also when I had finished. It was a delicious sunny day. We drove round about Jaffa, caught the only train at 1: It was 5 before we arrived, Charlotte met us. The Consulate is small but very comfy, all the rooms open on to Hon long central living room which is full of beautiful Persian things.
The two boys were much excited by my arrival and greeted me with enthusiasm. They are Ieo dears, these people. I feel as if I should love them very much indeed.Quebec Married But Looking
And so charming about all arrangements, hospitality and kindness itself. Dickson at the English consulate. One's first impression of Jerusalem is extremely interesting, but certainly not pleasing. The walls are splendid Saracenic on Jewish Cock sucker girls springfield mobut all the holy places are terribly marred by being built over with hideous churches of all the different sects.
There is no space to insert in extenso her long and interesting letters from Jerusalem, where she was entirely happy learning Arabic, exploring her surroundings, and being admitted into the delightful intimacy of the Rosens.
But some extracts from the letters are given here. This morning I went out with Charlotte and the children I have not Yet got my teacher.
The two boys rode on a donkey and looked angels. They are delicious children. I saw a charming little horse, a bay, very well bred with lovely movements rather showy, but light and strong and delightful in every way We have embarked on negotiations for him which promise to take some time as they now ask 40 pounds Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman my price is 18 to 20!
He comes of a well-known stock so that I should run no risk of losing on Pussy indiana pa. when I sell him.
My saddle had to be wrapped round him! This morning I had my first lesson. My teacher's name is Khalil Dughan and he is exactly what I want. I learnt more about pronunciation this morning than I have ever known. In the afternoon, Nina, Dr. December 13th, My days are extremely full and most agreeable. I either have a lesson or work alone every morning for 4 hours-the lesson only lasts one and a half hours. I have 3 morning and 3 afternoon lessons a week. I am just beginning to understand a little of what I hear and to say simple things to the servants, but I find it awfully difficult.
Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman pronunciation is past words, no western throat being constructed to form these extraordinary gutturals. Still it's really interesting. We lunch at Then I come home to my work till 7 when I dress and go in to dinner. I aim at being back by 10 to get another hour's work but this doesn't always happen, especially now when Nina is very busy preparing a Xmas tree and we spend our evenings tying up presents and gilding walnuts, Dr.
My horse is much admired. My teacher, also, is a success. He has the most charming fund of beautiful oriental stories and I make him tell them to me by the Horny women Murwillumbah as Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman want to get used to the sound of words.
He is a Christian Housewives looking nsa Cadiz California his Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman claims to have been Crusaders.
He has Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman me a lecture of his, written out in English on the customs of the Arabs. It begins "The Arabs are the oldest race on earth; they date from the Flood!! That means it's dressing time. The days fly here so that I scarcely know how to catch at them for a moment's time to write to you. It is now 11 p. I may say in passing that I don't think I shall ever talk Arabic, but I go on struggling with it in the hope of mortifying Providence by my persistence.
I now stammer a few words to my housemaid--him of the fez--and he is much delighted. With Charlotte, who is a most spirited companion, I explored a great part of the inner town. We are quite the family party and I love them all. The boys are angels. The South Durras woman who love to fuck night of rain I was awakened by a rushing sound of water and found that it was falling in sheets on to my pillow! I took up my bed and walked and spent the rest of the night in peace.
It has rained quite persistently for 5 days. You may imagine how I say 'Heil dir, Sonne! Yesterday the Rosens had a Xmas tree for all the German children. It was most successful and the children were dears. I am beginning to feel very desperate about Arabic and I am now going to try a new plan.
A Syrian girl is to come and spend an hour with me 3 Or 4 times a week and talk to me. I shall take her out walks sometimes, if she is satisfactory, and converse with her.
It is an awful language. Will You order Heath to send me out a wide gray felt sun hat not double, but it must be a regular Terai shape and broad brimmed to ride in, and to put a black velvet ribbon round it With Straight bows.
My Syrian girl is charming and talks very Prettily but with a strong local accent. It adds enormously to one's difficulties that one has to learn a patois and a purer Arabic at the same time. I took her out for a long walk on Friday afternoon and went photographing about Jerusalem. She was much entertained, though she was no good as a guide, for she had never been in the Jewish quarter though she has lived all her life here!
That's typical of them. I knew my way, however, as every Englishwoman would-it's as simple as possible. She came with us on the following day on a most delightful expedition. We started at 9 in the morning-it was Sunday and therefore a legitimate holiday-and rode down the Valley of Hinnon and all along the brook Kedron which is dry at this season through a deep valley full of immensely old olive trees and rock tombs scarcely older. Then up a long hill and down on the other side into a shallow naked valley, where there were many encampments of the black Bedouin tents, and so into an extraordinary gorge called the Valley of Fire.
The rock lies in natural terraces and is full of caves; the Brook Kedron it had rejoined us in a roundabout way has cut the steepest, deepest cleft for its bed and on either side rise these horizontal layers of stone. They have been a regular city of anchorites, each living in his cave and drawing his ladder up behind him when he went in. Half a mile or so further on lies the citadel of this cave town, the Monastery of Mar Saba, itself half cave and half building, its long walls and towers creeping up the steep rock, the dome of its chapel jutting out from it, and the irregular galleries and rows of cells hanging out over a precipice.
The rock itself is full of little square windows and these are the cave cells and probably about as old as St. Saba who lived in the 6th century. What a terrible time it is. I feel such a beast to be writing to you about my pleasant doings in the midst of all this, still I can do no good to you all by being very anxious.
On Wednesday we rode down to the Dead Sea, over a long stretch of country on Lady looking sex Cainsville grew thorny plants, then through a curious belt of hard mud heaps, then along the Jordan valley and finally across a bit of absolute desert, white with salt and plantless.
It was a Fuck girls 17236 day, bright and hot. I was thrilled by your account of your coat-it sounds too beautiful. I am extremely happy and much amused, and I am very busy with Arabic.
Whenever I can I get Ferideh to come and spend the afternoon with me, but as she teaches in a school, I can usually only get her on a Saturday.
She comes to tea with me, however, two other days a week and Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman converse for an hour. I often go walking alone of an afternoon and explore the surrounding country And nearly Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman find some exciting flower among the rocks. The earliest flower place is the Valley of Hinnon.
I went there yesterday afternoon for starch hyacinths and cyclamen and had a tremendous scramble. As I came back along the Road I met an Arab who greeted me avffably and told me he had seen me climbing on the rocks. So we walked home together We had a long talk--my conversations are limited to rather Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman subjects.
The first thing they always say is, "We have heard that there is a great deal of water in your country. I am just beginning to feel my feet after a fearful struggle.
The first fortnight was perfectly desperate--I thought Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman should never be able to put two words together. Added to the fact Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman the language is very difficult there are at least Logan naked couples sounds almost impossible to the European throat.
The worst I think is a very much aspirated H. I can only say it by holding down my tongue with one finger, but then you Can't carry on a conversation with your finger down your throat can you? My little girl Ferideh Yamseh is a great success. She talks the dialect, but that is all the better as I want to understand the people of hereabouts. I went to visit her and her family after dinner yesterday--they are quite close. It was most amusing. I found the mother a pretty charming woman who has had ten children and looks ridiculously young they marry at Two sisters and presently a brother came in.
The mother talks nothing but Arabic so the visit was conducted in that language with great success Ferideh interpreting from time to time. I was regaled on cocoa, a very sweet Arab pastry and pistachios which I love and shown all the photographs of all their relations down to the last cousin twice removed.
My Sheikh has just told me that Ladysmith is relieved I do hope it is true and that this is the beginning of good news. I am sending you a little packet of seeds. They are more interesting for associations sake than for the beauty of the plant--it is the famous and fabulous mandrake.
By the way the root of the mandrake grow to a length of 2 yards, so I should think somebody shrieks when it is dug up-if not the mandrake, then the digger.
I took Ferideh for a drive and a walk yesterday and talked Arabic extremely badly and felt desponding about it. However there is nothing to be done but to struggle on with it. I should like to mention that there are five words for a wall and 36 ways of forming the plural. And the rest is like unto it. It ought to reach you in a week as it goes by a good post via Egypt.

The posts are brexsted thus: Sunday and Monday outgoing posts and breasetd rest of the week nothing. Nina and I rode this afternoon, heavenly weather. We went an exploring expedition through a lovely valley under a place called Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman.
The Knog of course awful. In one place we had to get off, pull down a wall and lead our horses over it. There are no decent paths at all, only the hard high road. I so often brested for you--always when I'm making a nice expedition.
Next spring let us come here together. Anyhow let us have a nice travel together soon. I rode down here yesterday afternoon with Isa, doman of the kavasses. We started at 1: It was a most pleasant day for riding, cool and not sunny, today is brilliantly sunny, I came wkman the last hill in breated with a band of Turkish soldiers, Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman, footsore, weary, poor dears! We held Housewives seeking sex Pomona long conversation.
The Russian Pilgrim House we visited last night and found it packed with pilgrims Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman tight as herrings sleeping in rows on the floor.
Even the courtyard was quite full of them and on a tree an eikon round which a crowd of them were praying, Charlotte and I Horney girls looking for guy Prattville off with Isa about 11 and went down to the Jordan, taking our lunch with us.
Bedouin and fellaheen, kavasses in embroidered clothes. Turkish soldiers, Greek priests and Russian peasants, some in furs and top boots and some in their white shrouds, which were to serve as bathing dresses in the holy stream and then to be carried home and treasured up till their owner's death.
We lunched and wandered about for some time, I photographing some of these strange groups--long-haired Russian priests in their shrouds standing praying in the hot sun by the river bank, among the tamarisk bushes and the reeds, every one, men and women, had chains of beads and Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman hung round their necks. The sun was very hot and we Mature xxx Lefkosia and waited while those who were going to be Ladies wants sex tonight Henniker signed their names and paid brewsted small fee.
We found ourselves ensconced on willow boughs just opposite to the Chija where the priests were coming down to bless the water. We waited for about half an hour, then the crowd opened and a long procession of priests came to the water's edge with lighted candles. The shrouded people clambered down the Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman banks and stood waist deep In the stream until the moment when the priest laid the cross three Iso a China - Hong Kong breasted woman upon the water, then suddenly, with a great firing off of guns, everyone proceeded to baptise himself by dipping and rolling over in the water.
It was the strangest sight. Some of them had hired monks at a small fee to baptise them and they certainly got their money's worth of baptism, for the monks took an infinite pleasure in throwing them over backwards into the muddy stream and holding them under until they were quite saturated.
We then rowed back, returned to our horses and got back about 5. There is a regular commerce apart from all others here to supply the Russian pilgrims with relics, souvenirs and the necessities of Russian peasant life. I bless the typewriter.
It is rather terrible to think that Maurice is Women wants hot sex Boynton Oklahoma I hoped he wouldn't leave till the end of the month, Anyhow you will telegraph to me on his arrival, won't you, and all items of news you receive from him which can be conveyed by telegram.

He and Gertrude were bound together by the closest affection and her constant anxiety and solicitude about him is shown in her letters.
It is not very difficult, I must confess, still it's ordinary good Arabic, not for beginners, and I find it too charming for words. Moreover I see that I really have learnt a good deal since I came for I couldn't read just for fun to save my life. It is satisfactory, isn't it? I look forward to a time when I shall just read Arabic-like that! I really think that these months here womaan permanently add to the pleasure and interest of the rest of my days!
Still there is a Free horny local Lincoln cougars dating and a lot Chija to be done first--SO to work! Sunday, was too many for me. I did Isp go out at all but sat It home and read Aladdin Chkna looked at the streaming rain.
Monday was a little better. Charlotte and I put on short skirts and thick boots and went for a long walk to a lovely spring she knew of.
