Hey Guys! I am back from my month long overseas Military tour and everything went great! We visited Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Djibouti, Kuwait and finally Iraq. As soon as I get time, I will be posting some photos from the trip.

In Paris I had to take matters into my own hands and play Doctor. We went to a pharmacy and bought some needles and I drained my elbow which was at an all time high as far as inflammation and pain since surgery. Of course, I filmed it to show all of you sick monkeys out there!

Started this military tour on April 14th which began in Germany. We spent 2 days in Germany visiting bases and doing seminars. It was great seeing everyone again. I had previously visited Germany with the USO before my UFC 99 fight. A lot of the same servicemen were there and we had a blast.
We then drove to the Netherlands to visit the troops there. We spent this night in an old abandoned military hotel. It was crazy because we were the only people in this whole hotel. Not even hotel staff. It was kinda strange but entertainingly unique.
On day 4 we arrived in Belgium to rest before flying to Kuwait but because of the Volcano ash all flights were on hold. We just spent the day sight seeing the local attractions.
On day 5 we took off to Paris, France to visit the US Embassy. This will buy some time until the flights open and we can then finally get to Bahrain. Unfortunately, it looks like our trip to Kuwait is canceled.
Hopefully we will get down range soon! I am very much looking forward to the combat zone parts of the trip. The Eiffel tower is cool and all but I would much rather be eating my sandwich in front of the cross swords in Baghdad.

I arrived in Germany this morning after a long flight from the US. Germany is as nice as I remembered it from my last trip here. Upon arriving we went straight to the Army Barracks at Heidelberg. At 6pm we did a Q&A and took photos with the troops. Had a blast and will head to Spangdahlem Air Base tomorrow to visit the Airmen and do a MMA seminar.

More UAE videos coming soon including.... "Driving Armed Patrol Boats In Terrorist Waters", "Nogueira Has Goggles?!?" and "Pants On The Sand, With My Hat Turned Sideways, Looking Like A Fool With My Pants On The Sand". Ok, I am just bullshitting about the last one but that would have been funny! LONG LIVE LARRY PLATT!!

I made it back from the UAE last night, where I enjoyed a great nights rest in my own bed. This morning I had to go straight to my Doctor to get my elbow drained. Apparently, falling off sand dune surf boards and doing seminars is not the best post surgery rehab.

Today we went to the desert to drive the dunes and find camels. The first camel we found wasn't doing so good...
Then we found some camels that were still alive...
After I tried to sneak some food, an argument broke out and Big Nog and I had to square off against two hoofed opponents.
My camel and I made up and became best friends.
After a long humid day, I accepted and invitation to relax... Of course the joke was on me because all those black dots I am sitting on turned out to be camel shit! When in Rome...
After the dunes and camel adventure we went to a local camp where I temporarily blended in with the locals. They eventually caught on after spotting me tweeting on my cell phone.

This morning I met up with Anderson Silva after his interviews and he seemed in great spirits as he always does. I am very excited for his and all the fights this Saturday. Its going to be a great card!

Dogs are forbidden to wag their tails at this location! At least they can still walk around naked which is a severe crime for humans here. 2 foreigners were caught kissing in public a while back and spent over a month in jail. 2 others were found bumping uglies on the beach and they got an even longer sentence. They don't play around in the Middle East!
