I have been slack in posting once again… I’ve had an excuse, I’ve been in my own little world…. well, along with Elizabeth and two dogs 🙂
It’s been a busy year so far for me and when we got the opportunity to house and dog sit for two weeks on a compound I jumped at it! A compound here is a bunch of houses surrounded by a tall wall with barbed wire and guards with machine guns…. sound like a good place for a holiday?! Well, inside there is green grass, trees, and this one has cute houses:
Sitting in the back yard you could almost imagine you were back in Oz:
Especially when you see a sheep dog:
No sheep in the backyard though, just another little doggie that Elizabeth fell in love with and wanted to dognap:
One of the best things about living on a compound is that you can walk around without an abaya (black covering) on, so we made the most of that, taking the dogs for walks daily and also visiting the mini-mart and restaurant. We watched some movies, read some bookis, slept in, took long naps (me, not Elizabeth), stayed off the internet, and just relaxed!!!! I felt so rested at the end of those two weeks.
So I do apologize for ignoring you all without warning (I ran out of time to post before we went), but I know you will understand…. and if you are planning a holiday in the near future, I’d certainly recommend house/dog sitting on a compound 🙂
