Saudi Arabia: So Far, So Good?

We're over two years in to our second tour in the Foreign Service with the US Department of State in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. It's hard to describe just how foreign it is to those who haven't been here, but the following posts might give you some idea.

This mural in Jeddah's Airport (Ranked #1...
worst in the world!) screams
"Welcome to Saudi Arabia!"


Getting in and getting settled:

Things kind of specific to working in Jeddah and/or Saudi Arabia:
Mosque, Petrol, Supermarket, and ATM:
For when you're running on low on anything.
One of these trees is not like the others.
Not sure this is what they meant by "catch a ride"
Traffic circle art that looks like an accident?
Places to get out of Saudi Arabia:
Other Blogs about Jeddah / Saudi Arabia:

Saudi Arabia in the News:

So, yeah, that's about it. I plan to move most of these links to "our end of tour" reference page when we leave, but I'll probably keep adding links to this page until then. That said, when I change things up, this hyperlink should stay the same but I'll probably link from this post to "the end of tour" page to some time in 2017.
