1971 I worked on a construction project in Algeria, near the small coastal town of Arzew. My accomadation (one room) was in the redundent ( ) used long ago by the French navy. 1979 I was employed on the construction of a muli story office block in Bahrain. I shared my company apartment with a fellow foreman, who I had never met before and who, in the mid seventies had also worked in Algeria, in Arzew, his office was my old room. Totaly different companies, different continents, eight years apart.
