Hello Blogosphere! I know it has been a very long looooong time. First and foremost, I would like to thank my dear followers and co-bloggers for the undying support. I seriously didn’t post anything for the past six months and surprisingly, my stats and site traffic is in good shape. With all my heart, I am in deep gratitude.
With absence, comes along is an explanation. I decided a few months back to take an upgrading with my career path. I am proud to say I successfully reached my targeted goals for this matter.
I am currently on a vacation with my kids in a place where people usually never ever think of as an ideal destination for a so called leisure holiday. Nevertheless, I am happy and for sure is having a great time. I have mentioned in few of my blog post before that considering the job location of my husband, we are working our a** off and tried to get our selves together. This may not be permanent set up but it is the least of what the company can offer us.
Since there isn’t much to share from this place that would be interesting to my beloved readers, as a come back post, I hope this picture will do the trick.
These are Ancient Mediterranean Ruins that can be seen along the old streets and back roads of the city named Khamis Mushayt in Aseer Region in the southern part or Saudi Arabia. I apologize for the poor quality of the pictures. We were just driving along the area and I did my best to discretely take this shots as picture taking in public is prohibited in Saudi Arabia, considering that these ruins are situated next to mosques. The last thing I need in this trip is a nerve wrecking interrogation if ever caught for a crime that most countries will never even bother to notice, much more consider it a criminal offense.
I have seen these ruins a few years back when I was still working in this area and it reminded me of the scenes of the old movies I’ve seen when I was a kid. Movies like The Ten Commandments, Ben Hur, Jesus of Nazareth, Moses, etc., where they featured people’s houses that were somewhat made of sand packed like hardened walls. As much as I wanted to, I can never get information as to what these ruins were before. For me, they look like towers that were used to guard a territory and watch for upcoming opponents of some kind. They might be homes where animal livestock herders lived. Like I was when I first seen it, my kids were amazed too. I just felt sorry I can’t provide answers to their curious questions about it.
Saudi Arabia is definitely a rich country. Literally rich! Oil, gold, culture and religion. But, this country is not a normal tourist-friendly. My kids are getting bored for having not much places to go and visit. Despite all this, we are just as happy as any other vacation goers all over the world as we are together as family.
Once again, thank you for continually visiting my site and taking time to read my posts!
