Great adventure
Hello I like your article as you select simple topic which is telling us about your restaurant outing but for me its more deeper as restaurant is one of main concern that visitors to a country or even resident think alot about it as we enjoy our time not only in museum or mall but one unique restaurant outing can made our day. The best thing i like about your article that you not only tell us about your experience in this great restaurant but you also describe all details starting from restaurant decoration, welcoming drink and food as if you give us review about this restaurant and in my point of view tourists need to visit such restaurant not only to take great dinner but also to know more about Saudi culture which is reflected in this restaurant decoration, food and drinks also you can smell middle east through such outing Thanks for your great lines

Dinner in Dammam
I have not looked at this website in a long time, but ran across your comment today (April 3, 2019). Thank you so much for your very nice comment. I have not visited Saudi Arabia in quite some time (since 2012), and I miss it. I learned much about the Saudi culture and wish that more Americans had the opportunity to do so. Again, thank you very much for your comments, Kayla.

The caves of Al Qara

Hohuf and the Al Quara Mountain Caves
Nasrin, thank you very much for your kind words. I'm glad that you like the photos. All caves are cool inside, regardless of where they are in the world. The cave walls insulate the inside from the outside air. In very cold climates, such as where I live, the caves are the same temperature, but they feel warm to us because it is cold outside. This is a wonderful place to visit. Thanks for reading my blog.

Bagels, Cream Cheese & Lox
Oh, what delicious looking food! I happened upon this because I was looking for a recipe for Lox that would be different. I have had some Mediterrean food and absolutely love it! I will look at your travel photos later.

Hi Ibtassam. This photo was taken in the Saudi Aramco Exhibit (which is now being redone, unless it is finished.). It is of a fish I saw in a fish tank.

I am really excited to visit the place after reading your blog. Are there any other places in the vicinity worth a visit?
2nd September 2013

There are many places to visit in Khobar, Dammam, and other towns and cities. If you read my other blog entries, you will get some ideas. I also enjoyed Kuwait City, Kuwait.

Especially the 1st time you talked to a completely covered lady, except the eyes. Wait until you see the completely covered ladies by all means, although this is not so common these days. However, I need to mention that this tradition is still common across the Arabian countries in the gulf and three countries in north Africa.

Aramco Compound

Compound Photos
I notice that there are no women in your photos. It would be nice to see how women dress at Aramco (currently being flown out for a job interview with the company. Also, it would be great to see the inside of some of the compounds so a new comer will know what to expect. Thanks for your journal!

Love reading your early impressions
It is fun as the culture reveals itself to you. And, can't imagine they want to get some work out of you.

Looks like a good time of year to leave Minnesota and head to Saudi Arabia.

I had no idea that the gelatin in marshmallows is a pork-based product. Thanks for the information. Fortunately the border guards did not see it!

Peeps are Haram
Hi, Your Muslim colleagues could not eat these because they are made of marshmallows and marshmallows are made with gelatin and gelatin is made from pork which is forbidden to them.

Best cheese bread
Latif is known for their cheese bread and zatar bread - staples for expats, especially the kids. I always pick it up the day our kids are arriving for the holidays (any many other times also).

Hi, you should have gone to Dammam Corniche and the Perfume District. Dammam is a very large City, one day is not enough. The most exciting day to visit Dammam is Friday when it's filled with South Asians. You'll think that you're lost in New Delhi.

Colorful flags over a parking lot

I don't believe these flags were for sale. They were just decorations.
