Anyway, just a few last photos of my trip and then on to the normality of life!!
While we were gone we had lots of Arabic food 🙂 One day we went to lunch at a friend’s house – she had been very busy and literally had this “spread” for us:
She insisted I try a little bit of everything, so I did… and most of it was yummy 🙂
Needless to say, I didn’t need a big dinner that night! We all sat on the floor, and I have decided I need to practice that at home so that next time I don’t get so stiff and sore! It was a special time though, and I am so thankful I was able to be there. I enjoy learning about other culutres and this friend has promised if I come back in the summer she will give me some cooking lessons!
On the weekend Cameron drove over to pick us up. We headed over to a larger town called Khobar to spend the night before driving 400 more km back home. We stayed in a hotel in a room with a sea view… but it was a stormy day so we couldn’t see far. Here is the view from the balcony.
Driving home was a challenge. We got stuck in a huge storm. We had two boxes of batting on the roof rack… wrapped up in plastic garbage bags!! We had to stop a few times to reposition everything, and once to buy some packing tape at a petrol station. It arrived safe and sound though:
So that was my week…. I’m planning another one in two or three months… but I need to first let hubby get over all that driving!!
