Four months in Saudi Arabia and going strong

I am happy to inform my readers that I have now completed 4 1/2 months in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. After about three months, I settled down to a routine which involves a lot of walking, good exercise, simple food and frequent dinners at local eating houses, gorging off and on on sweets/chips/flavoured milks etc., light duties occasionally complicated by night calls and emergencies, late night internet surfing, Thursday-Friday weekends, friendly sojourns with fellow Indians, Pakistanis and Bangla deshis, and so much more. 

Only recently, i.e. about 5 days ago, I went to see an administered Wildlife Reserve; the experience was clearly unique, and I saw, for the first time in my life, exotic creatures such as the Red-necked Ostriches, the Oryx, the  Leppet-faced Vulture, the Reem Gazelle and the Ibni Gazelle, as also the Grey Shrike and a few other birds. This outing opened my eyes to the possibility of beautiful things even existing on places like this deserty place in the interior of Saudi Arabia.
