Since my computer is on the fritz and I'm still keen to keep up with regular blog posts I came up with an idea. I'm unable to do any real amount of typing because I'm just not that interested in hen pecking my way through a post via my phone. Instead, I'm going to have you, my dearest readers, help me out. Let me explain...
One thing that often happens to me when I travel is that I forget to look at the forest and concentrate only on the trees (or grains of sand in my case, I suppose). When I leave a place I realize that there's a lot I missed simply because I forgot to shift my perspective now and again, or I simply didn't get curious about various aspects of life or culture while I was there. This is where you guys come in. I know a number of you have had questions for me about life in Riyadh and have asked me those questions on Facebook. I have a feeling a number of others have questions of their own. Now is the time to ask. While I'm waiting for my computer to be repaired I'll become an investigative journalist and ask my seasoned Riyadh resident friends for answers if I can't answer them myself. As a result of this little project, you'll get your curiosity quenched and I'll gain a better perspective of this interesting country.
To ask a question, click on the "Post A Comment" link below this blog entry and start typing. Then I'll head out and start my research. Once my computer is fixed I'll have oodles of material to write about. Oooh! This is exciting!!
