Saudi Arabia is never a place I dreamed of living. Even when we moved to the Middle East, the thought of living in Saudi never crossed my mind.
We then became friends with people who had lived in Saudi for years and it still wasn't a thought I entertained.
When we lived in Jordan we would often vacation in Dahab, Egypt. We spend numerous hours looking east, across the Red Sea, at the mountains in Saudi Arabia thinking how close they were and how we would never see them. Our last time in Dahab was Spring Break nine years ago.
Now we go camping in those very mountains on a regular basis.
The thought that struck me this morning was that not only did I never think we would live here, but we are about to have lived in three totally different cities in this country. I smile and shake my head at the mysterious way life unfolds.
