Today, for the first time, I met up with somebody I knew only through blogging and the internet!
I met up with Nader, who also brought me the ”Saudi Care Packet” from American Bedu, and will be taking my offering back to American Bedu!
Like a sort of ”postillion d’blog-amour”
I didn’t get a blackened magazine 😦 , but Nader has promised to send me one! 🙂
Mindful of the many dangers, and shocking indecencies involved in shaking hands, I did not extend my hand (rude!!!) thereby depriving Nader of his planned practical joke of him acting all shocked and repugnant! Hè, hè, hè!!!
I had a lovely afternoon, we had some very interesting conversations, and it was over all to soon!
Isn’t blogging brilliant!
So check out the mega-box of Mecca-sweets!!!!
And the greedy hands of my colleagues at the Graphic Workshop, ( I made it just in time, jumping of the train, getting my bike, and racing to the Graphic Workshop)
They were only allowed two each, I have promised more people a ”taste of Arabia”!!! Luckily it’s a very large, very well-stuffed box!!! And it’s all lovely!!!!
And, last but not least, a beautiful embroidered Caftan!!!
Thanks American Bedu, and thanks Nader!
