Favorite Scenes

These are some of my favorite scenes from Saudi Arabia.  They are things that make me smile when I think of life here.  Some are scenes you see on a regular basis other only occasionally.  Either way they are my favorites.  I will continue to add to this page.

    Awesome! You have really captured the life! Fantastic blog!

  2. Hello! Do you still live in Saudi Arabia presently? I am writing a novel set in Dhahran, and it is based on my living experiences there as a child, back in the 1980's. My mother taught for King Faisal University for Women, and my father taught for the Saudi Navy, under various training companies. The first was Telemedia, the second, Sperry Arabia and then TINS or RSNF (Royal Saudi Naval Forces). We lived there from 1979-1987. My little brother was born in King Fahd Hospital in 1986, and I attended Dhahran Academy up to my 9th grade year, after which, I did correspondence courses my Sophomore and Junior years. It was quite the amazing experience for me, and allowed our family to travel the world. I came across this blog as I was doing more research for my novel, and thought I would check in and say hi. I am a teacher, and have considered coming over to the UAE one day, but we shall see. Thanks for sharing your insights, and your pictures. It brings back so many memories. I have a Saudi Arabian friend, who still lives in Dhahran, and we write to one another. I live in California. Take care. Heather

  3. HI! I was doing research for my novel I am writing, which is set in Dhahran in the 1980's, and came across your blog. Do you still live in Saudi presently? I lived in Dhahran from 1979-1987, and attended Dhahran Academy International School up until my 9th grade year, after which, I did 2 years of correspondence courses.My little brother was born in Saudi at King Fahd Hospital in 1986. My mother was an ESL teacher at King Faisal University near the Saudi Naval base, and my father taught for various training companies at the Naval base. The first company was Telemedia, then Sperry Arabia and then TINS or RSNF (Royal Saudi Naval Forces). It was quite the experience for all of us, and we had the opportunity to travel all over the world. I have also been to Riyadh and Jeddah. I have been a teacher for 13 years, and contemplated working in the UAE, but not sure at this point. Would love to hear back from you. Take care...Colleen
