Status Post (almost) Six Months
I know, right? Has six months really (almost) gone by since I arrived into The Kingdom?
I’ve been really busy since coming back from Thailand and since the slow-paced month of Ramadan has ended. I know I haven’t been as prolific with my blog posts in recent weeks, so thought I would give a quick update here. I am back to a regular working schedule and I’ve also been taking quite a few classes the hospital offers – Some of it review and other classes very new stuff (heart transplant and Arabic speaking lessons, for example.) I’ve also been busy, ahem, doing *stuff* in the Arabian desert.
I’ve also been busy exploring and getting to know Riyadh better.
I was introduced to “Bahta” which was described to me as the “ghetto of Riyadh”
But despite the ghetto-ness of the place I had the best Indian dinner I have yet had anywhere.
The weather is finally cooling down here in Riyadh. Rather than 110F/43C, it’s a cool 100F/37C.
And in a couple of days I am heading to some place with some real balmy weather…
Amalfi Coast, Italy.

This one is not a solo trip. At various intervals of the trip I shall be meeting up with folks from my present, from my past, and perhaps from my future as well. I am very much looking forward to this trip and shall keep you all posted.
