Libya - Come For the Sand, and Bring Cash

Evidentially, Libya is going to try to get travel sanctions lifted in an attempt to get more tourists to visit. From "U.N. sanctions kept tourists from visiting this North African country for more than a decade. Now the former pariah state best known for its eccentric leader, Moammar Gadhafi, is slowly opening its doors as it tries to shed its rogue state status."

After reading the story, I decided to check out what a possible trip to Libya might be like. From what I've read alcohol is banned in Libya and ATM's are scarce, so there's that.

This is either a hotel or an ancient ruin. Since I have no idea which, and this blog really isn't based in fact, I'm going to say it's a hotel.

From the hotel, it's only a short ride through the desert to another great attraction...

Sand Skiing!

This is Col. Muammar Abu Minyar al-Qadhafi, the leader of Libya. He apparently does not have an official title. He just took over and started to lead. How about that, slackers? This dude just took over a country and started to lead it, and we can't even lead ourselves into the laundry room.

Libya has a thriving mass transit system.

Ladies and gentleman, give it up once again to the great leader of Libya, Col. Muammar Abu Minyar al-Qadhafi!!!
