Last few days before the exam

Just a quick note to inform my readers that all is going according to Allah's wishes ... I leave tomorrow morning to go to Riyadh, where my Part 2 exams are on Tuesday, 14th May 2013. I am going by my own car. This will be my first experience of driving nearly 600 km. but I am emboldened by the beautiful roads and by Allah's being with me now for over 1 1/2 years since I came to Saudi Arabia. If you will read my very early blogs, I had mentioned that one of the goals of coming to this country was to try and pass the MRCPCH examinations in full. If I am able to clear the second part on the 14th, I will be one step closer to my goal. After this, Inshallah, I will appear for the final part early next year. 

I have packed my bag, am about to eat my dinner, and will sleep early as I have to leave early in the morning if I am to avoid the killer heat of this country's mid-mornings. Once I reach Riyadh, I will look for a decent hotel in which to stay, and soon thereafter, be immersed in studies. 

I plan to visit the venue of the exam on the next day, and familiarise myself with the roads and the territory in general. Hope to write the next entry either a day before the exam, or the night after the exam is over, i.e. on Tuesday night.

Watch this space for more news ...

Thank you for reading and for your good wishes.
