Two-Week Trip (March 16-30, 2014)

This has been a trip like no other, unprecedented that is. Two days in Dammam, another three in Al Ahsa, the Mers-cov capital of the world (the reputation at least), and a further five days in Riyadh. I have been accustomed to a shorter one since time immemorial but this time an additional itinerary that which is Jizan, Abha and Khamis Mushayt is just really unexpected. All in all fifteen days away from home is unthinkable. The reasons being: our five cats could have starved to death, roaches in the kitchen might have tripled their population. But thank God there is Babol who had to see to it that our feline family is still accounted for when we get back. And the roaches -- well it could take less than ten minutes the annihilate them. All glory belongs to Jesus who has been with us all throughout. Thank you Lord!
