Photos Again

Some pics I took yesterday of the kids as we walked through a sort of garden-ish area. Happy to see some green any time I can in a land of beige.

What'dya know the sun's sitting right atop her head.

Salwa's like "are you done yet? Can I go?" Don't worry that's just hibiscus in the kid's glasses at dinner.

After, we went to Corsini Cafe cause they have a playground which is brilliant.

  7. WOW! I've been to Hurghada several times! But never into the town (city?) but instead only out in the desert while our aircraft was being refuled on the way to Bahrain.

    What a small world!!! I have a little box full of stones from Hurghada.

    We're the same age ~ well, I'm 33 ~ and I'm a housewife too. If you'd like a pen-pal from Scotland (I'm American!) that lives on an organic farm then let me know! That's be fun!

  9. Mona, I know what do you mean by saying it's brilliant for a cafe or a restaurant to have a play ground. My kids and I are suffering from the lack of clean child entertainment here. No parks, gardens, and NO PUBLIC LIBRARY :( can you believe that! My girls are books-fanatic and love to read and since we came here it’s either they read their old books that we brought with us again and again or we have to buy it and it’s so expensive to buy an English written book here. Even the teen magazines that my girls used to read back in the states are triple the price here. And people complain about culture and civilization in the Middle East, how they can accomplish that without a library!!

  11. Coffee Catholic, wow, what did you do in Bahrain? I like your blog.

    Nalbanna. I can commiserate. They opened a library here "Susan Mubarak Library" anyway there was a nice playground and a english/arabic kids book section and an activity/art room. After a few months, most of the swings/toys in the playground were broken/dangerous. There were open holes in the groud and broken glass from laterns left days at a time. The books began to be less and were often stolen so they would not lend them out anymore and the activity room's supplies diminished and were never refilled or anything. Sad.
