First Time

Last Wednesday we had experience for the first time a real sandstorm in Saudi Arabia. Early that morning some of my fellows returned from the site to the office since the storm was getting harsh. And when I rushed to the door I could feel some powerful wind outside. So in our lunch we had to rushed to the nearby building where our canteen was located to avoid the harmful blowing of sand with a mass of heat all over.

I thought it was over that afternoon but worst it continued until almost evening and when we got home the city of Dammam was in semi-dark too because of the storm. That was it! The one Saudi experience we would like not to have. But it did and it will come again. Well that was part of the experience, isn't it?

(photos from Grover and Zander) - I just wonder if this storm is predicted just like a local storm in the Philippines so that people can have safety protective suits in case it will happen.

Fishing - It's More Fun In Dammam!

QIPP Pinoy Team did it again! last Thursday night and we had so much fun in Dammam Cornich catching fish and actually grilling it..then had some picnic with rice and vegetables - all Pinoy style food in the land of the king and oil!..

And I think this is our life in the face of unknown fears and distant family - creating friendships and lasting memories that once we are having fun in this country that is often mistakenly as boring and no fun will be generated..well we are wrong and thanks God for that!
