    Back in Riyadh

    April 16, 2018 in Saudi Arabia ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    We returned to Riyadh on Friday. Our team member abdul wadood insisted we come to his house for lunch. His wife made us a feast. It was great seeing him, greeted by his 4 kids. The 16 month old was adorable , seen in the 1st picture did not want to leave his side. She loved interacting with me.

    On Saturday I found the Starbucks cup/logo for emilie, then at night I found a burrito while walking around oliyah st (Riyadhs 5th avenue). You can see the kingdom tower behind me in purple lights.

    On Sunday we had successful meetings with the ministry followed by an Egyptian lunch with the Egyptian team members

    On our way to Buraydah

    March 16, 2015 in Saudi Arabia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    So we finally left Riyadh and are currently two hours into a 4 hour drive to Buraydah. We were fortunately able to depart Riyadh a day early. I only have one photo today which is of us stuck inside a supply store during prayer. We were waiting for them to tally up our bill as the doors began to close and lock for prayer (notice doors closed in the background). We found out halfway through prayer that we needed an Atm to settle the bill but had to wait out the remainder of the 30 prayer before we could find an ATM. Fortunately they had chairs for usRead more

    Camel for lunch

    March 24, 2018 in Saudi Arabia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    After arriving in Riyadh and a productive morning of meetings, the project manager was excited to take me to lunch for some camel. A month or two ago he found out I have never tried camel and he has been talking about it ever since. It wasn't that I was avoiding it, it was that out of all my trips here my drivers either never took me to a place that had camel or never ordered it for us. Most of the time the people I am with order for me unless we are at some fast food or westernized place. Posted are a couple pictures of our meal, camel with rice. According to the manager it is young camel as older camel is tougher meat. The meal was really good and it was followed up some kunafah, a dessert made of shredded dough with a sweet cheese filling (similar to whip cream )Read more

    Taking inventory

    Today was our last real busy day. We met with the drivers one last time, completed a full inventory and filled their vehicles up for next time. We are having them store all the equipment in Jeddah to save us time next trip. After a full days work we went to one of the only Mexican food places in Saudi. It is similar to chipotle. Our driver loves Mexican food and i took him to this place last time. The only photo I took besides inventory was of the Kingdom towerRead more
