I miss your prickly, sticky heat and the simplicity of life that you provide. I miss my Mum and Dad and brother. Even though life is simple in Jeddah, it is still called the Las Vegas of Saudi Arabia, freer than most. I miss the call to prayer, it makes the hairs on my arms stand up. I love the sense of community: my friends, going fishing, cooking and eating together. Even after being in Edinburgh for five years I still swear in Arabic: it’s just natural. I look forward to enjoying you soon.
Best Wishes A
