Another week bites the dust!

It’s the weekend again in Saudi:) this week seems to have flown and now our lovely relaxing weekend in Aqaba seems ages ago. This week has seen a return to school and the dreaded report cards to write. My class is the biggest in the school so I have the marathon task of writing 11! Compared to being a teacher back in UK a dawdle but here I envy those with 6 or 7 children in their class.
Anyway before last weekend fades into the dim and distant past here are a few pics of ‘in and around’ Aqaba.

Evening view of the hotel pool.

Watermelons for sale.

Nets around the dates to stop the birds having a feast!

Shop goods are commonly stacked up on the pavement.

The remains of the ancient city, Ayla.

Brewing up Turkish coffee for my husband.

Sand bottle art is a popular tourist buy.

Parasailing seemed popular this weekend.

Enjoying a Lebanese mezze.

Camel on its way to the public beach to give ‘rides’.

Travelling to the ferry.
So and what of this weekend?
Finish my reports. Relax. Catch up with some knitting and reading for pleasure and on a sad note go to a ma’asalama party for a friend. (ie leaving party)
Enjoy your weekend whenever it comes:)
