  1. I liked the picture of yhe buildings which had zig zag trim and some color in their stucco. I liked the colored details snd the star. I was wondering if it were a fancy television antenna or cell phone tower? Or a pretty star decoration? Lyn, I liked the hazy sight from the roof of your own apt building. It us all so interesting but I like my small town with trees and street lamps. 🙂

          • But you did it. It is so encouraging to hear your story. You must have been having panic attacks, my nerves would have been deep fried! I can imagine the first time you set out. Empathy!

          • Yes, walking out the door seems simple when you say it…it’s the act that is so intimidating. I so get that.

  3. Lyn–How fascinating. The play place looks pretty amazing–was it like a playground area? And I’m trying to imagine what’s inside the enclosure of the homes…is there green space behind the walls? Thanks for this peek into Riyadh!

  6. Interesting to see English text on on one of the shops, but then again I guess it catered to the Westerners there?
