Artist's Description

Libya 1986.
In 1985/86 I was for my work in Libya.
Our mainoffice was in Benghazi, but I was on projects far south in the desert and the last year in Tobruk, on the Oil Terminal.
When the American Air Force did their “Raid” on Benghazi and Tripoli, my wife was with me in Tobruk.
When the airports were opened again, Idris, a cousin of the former King Idris of Libya, who was working for us, came to collect us in Tobruk and showed us the better things of Libya, like here at Historical “Cyrene and Apollonia”.
Idris was an intelligent gentleman of about 30 years.
He had high connections all over the country, many Libyans liked him very much.
When the Ghadaffi clan got hopefully beated the comming days, maybe Libya can return to a Kingdom with ‘our’ Idris as the King ? Hope so.!!!

ps. Not the best quality, but i like to show you a few of this old slide scans.
Thanks for your interest.
