As a saudi citizen it was great for me to hear your experience about living in sakaka. For the past three years i was living in australia and as a foreigner there i was going through positive and negative experiences. Therefor i always wondering how it would be if it was the opposite, if a western live in my hometown?! Well, answer was found in your lovely blog. Thank you for writing down such detailed experience and good luck with your teaching job. Im happy to offer my help and friendship. Please do not hesitate to contact me on my email!
I am scheduled to be coming to work for the same company. i am from South Africa. Would you mind answering a few questions for me on email?
Your entry was blog of the day a few days ago and it caught my eye. I am from California and my husband and I will be moving to Saudi in August to work in an international school. I love your photos and entries-they are like a sneek peek into what I should expect-especially as a woman. What brings you to SA?
Great to hear about how you're getting on in Cairo - it must be warm if you're able to go round in flip-flops! Damascus is pretty cold, I didn't leave the house without at least 2 jumpers for the first month!
Now I've realised we're getting funding for the summer course, I'm tempted to move over to Egypt in May/June time for a couple of months! How easy did you find it to get a place to live? Is it cool living in the same city as the Pyramids? What's the deal on alcohol in the country?
Stay safe, maybe see you in summer! XXX
Great to read your exploits but there seems to be nothing since 8th October. Are you still there and if so how do I get updated. I'm a virgin blogger and have never read one before, let alone posted a message, so this is a first. Keep safe. Love Sophie
Are you still there? You've gone awfully quiet. We are picking up the cider apples this afternoon.
Please post another blog - we all want to know why you were on russian tv. Prime time show or regional laxative ad? And have you applied to MI6 yet? Sounds like you'd blend in really well with your purple poodle coat and dodgy language. Seriously there was a v interesting prog about it on Radio 4 yesterday. Father has found a new purpose in life - when I woke him up this morning his bed had become a cross channel ferry, and his job was arranging marriages between lonely French ladies and English men. He maintained this throughout listening to the service being broadcast live on radio 4 from the chapel along the corridor - we could listen to it in stereo - one ear for real the other on the radio!
I think there might be a little letter flying towards you right now... I don't think they will understand my russian writing... I had to practice it four times before I put it on the envelope.
I miss you
Hello! I just stumbled upon your blog.Kept meaning to read it and now I have. It's really good you have a close group of people there. We're pretty scattered here in India as a group, really, but spend so much time doing homework don't know how you've been managing to run so often! Your host mother (Im surrounded by Americans, don't judge me! At least I didn't say Mom!) sounds amazing. The family I'm living with are great but I've had it about up to HERE with the daily update on my weight/looks they insist on giving me every day..... Today's was 'you're looking slim'.The other day was 'you're looking fat'. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
Read my blog. Love you lots, glad it's going well. Xxxx
Rosy, I am in love with your Blog.
I am so pleased that you are enjoying life in all its tacky shininess! Keep up the bloggage, I love knowing what your doing. I'm in Oxford with the heavily pregnant one currently. Its nice.
Miss you shiny girl!
Have just collected Frances from Beaumont Singers. Jenny and I talked about you, specially cos she was just getting some bread out of her machine, so I told her about all the amazing bread you made for us. Still some left. They have two huge labradors - one black one pale - but not quite as nice as Zebedee and ?? what is her name, other than Wonky?
