I have blogged about the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi and wanted to write the second part of my experiences in the Middle East last year but was not able to do so. Few weeks ago, I received my visa for another possible work assignment in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). This would be my second visit, in case. It was Ramadan when I first went to KSA and did not have time to go around the city. My daily routine was hotel to workplace to hotel. During the daily commute, I managed to have few snaps. But liked only one photo (see below).

I long for winter
The temperature reached 40+ deg C during my stay. I thought it wouldn’t be a problem since I grew up from a tropical country, I was wrong. I struggled and it took me few days to adjust. I easily got tired and thirsty. Or maybe because I was overweight at that time, thus the difficulties. On my next work assignment, I think I will be fine as long as the temperature will not skyrocket to 50 deg C or higher.
