reflections in the sand
This is a blog reflecting my perceptions and experiences in Saudi Arabia, everything from food, culture and society, education, and the (sometimes) rapid changes going on in this country.

I hope this blog will help to bring a different perspective regarding this fascinating nation.

I am Canadian and my husband is Saudi. We divide our time between Canada and Saudi Arabia, doing our best to make the most of both worlds!
