As you can tell from looking at this blog I have not really updated it in over a year. While I have been answering questions and emails it is just too time consuming to keep it up. Plus storage has become an issue. I have not quit taking photos and still wish to share those. My solution has been to create a page on Facebook. Unlimited storage, easier to add photos. I am still very early in adding the last year of stuff but here it is. I will continually be adding to this page. I will still continue to answer comments and you can still send me email address here which I will answer as well. Thank you for all your support. This blog took off in ways I never imagined!!

Thankfully Saudi Arabia has banned men from working in lingerie stores, although it is a recent development. Bahrain has not followed suit. I still find it very odd to have men selling underware, bras, and such to women who must wear and abaya and cover themselves. Just seems like a contradiction. Anyway hopefully Bahrain will start employing women in these jobs soon instead of men.
Pork is not allowed to be sold in Saudi Arabia. It is not eaten by Muslims. Coming to Saudi Arabia I never realized how much of it I ate. It has become one of the things I miss about the States. On a trip to Bahrain we were introduced to the Pork Section of a grocery store. Not something you see at all the stores in Bahrain since they are also a Muslim country. It was quite a sight to see. It was also interesting to see the other "American" food in that section. Things like Lucky Charms, and Spam. Ugh!
