Welcome family and friends and all those interested in learning more about life in the Middle East-as an expat. We invite you to join us on our mysterious journey, which began in Texas and continues to Saudi Arabia...and now one year later....back to the US! One year of life in Jeddah was enough to write a book. So many good and not so good things were experienced. We write about them here.....

Tea time all the time in Saudi!
Tea time all the time
You can call it hospitality or pure enjoyment. Over the past few weeks I have been busy meeting new vendors to make our services more attractive and up to par with international standards. Yesterday I met with a total of 7 vendors and I visited two other personal in our company. For each visitor it is customary to order tea or Arabian coffee. Even though there is no rule book on this but what I have noticed the other person will not leave till both parties are done.
So you can imagine with 9 visits and 9 cups of tea or coffee there is a coffee break every few minutes.
