Read Me/Disclaimer: This is a non-political/socio-political blog. It's a running tale of my Saudi Arabian adventure, great, good, bad, and ugly. It is uncensored, and I don't really care what you think of it, read it or don't. I don't care. I did not decide to do this as a means to an end, but rather to document the means with which I occupied my time while waiting for my end... All that being said, I'm an American Expat in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The opportunity to help build this system and the salary that accompanied it were to good to pass up.-Geoff

No, it really does still set in the west

So, here I am.  Beginning of the second week in Saudi, things are going great.  I've gotten fairly settled, haven't gone crazy without the family, and have found some creature comforts at the market to make me feel like I'm home.  Of course, every time things die down for a minute, I realize that I'm without Kay and Dylan and without the dogs and cats. I always kinda feel like I need to be getting home, kinda like I was sitting on a friends couch laughing and having a beer when I realized how late it had gotten...I miss my family, but at least I don't take them for granted, I know exactly what I have to come home to some day.  but right now, things are good, the sky is blue, the water is wet (although the pressure sucks) and the sun still sets in the west. All is right with the world, my world at least.
