It was karmic that Riyadh was somewhere on my life list, having been born in Dhahran and then working for many companies in Jeddah.

It is a rather different situation than the rest of the country. I wanted to return to Canada on Day one, but nine months out, it has sort of grown on me.

I am still wondering if there really are any quality restaurants that exist beyond the supposed 5-star hotels, and notably of the Pakistani, Greek and Thai kind!

I really do need to expand my social circle. Have done some by joining Toastmasters Arabian Stallions Club, but looking for the Riyadh Scrabble Group and other opportunities. Love movies - Hollywood, Japanese, classic world cinema, into vampires and zombies, love to cook and eat well, cannot find a convenient tennis court. Life is good and getting better.
