I arrived in Saudi Arabia in 1986 as a newly married young teacher. 27 years later I am still here- and still married! Over the years I have definitely seen many changes in the local area of Tabuk and of course met lots of interesting people, made a lot of good friends and as is the nature of living in an expat community had to say goodbye to many people too. The children I first taught are scattered around the world and beginning to have children of their own. How I wish I had started a blog when I first came but better late than never to start writing about my experiences in a country which I have felt is home but I will never ever be a part of no matter how long I stay here.
