Allah hayaik--hir BO!
the traditional Assiri bedu welcome is much on my lips, as I'm heading to Farshah on thursday, about 150km down the mountains towards Yemen. Foreigners were only recently permitted to travel there due to the kanjah & rifle toting, bullet laden locals which were/are an embarrassment to the Najd government. I'm going with a local so, hopefully won't end with my throat cut....
Have Camera, will capture....or be captured
Otherwise work overwhelms currently, I'm on my 3 hour middle of the day break, Stuck in khamis Mushayt, as I've got to teach again at 5PM until 9PM then the infamous 30 minute hair raising drive back to Abha
baraked salams unto all
