As we write this blog on Canada Day, we are reminded of our amazing country and all the incredible friends and family we miss back home. We live in a new place but Canada is, and always will be, home!
The pics of everyone dressed in red & white in festive atmospheres definitely makes us realize the fun we are missing back there.
Summer is in full gear here in Saudi with daily temperatures ranging from daily highs around 47-48 Celsius to lows of 33-34. The good thing is that the humidity doesn't ramp up until July. Our compound is getting quite quiet as moms and kids head home for summer and many dads are in and out with vacations.
We will find ways to keep cool inside the chilled pools. Many people stay cool and get exercise by going to the shopping malls and doing laps.
This blog update will focus on the June Eid trip we took to Uganda.
This trip was not on our list when we first moved to Saudi but after seeing videos and pics, and hearing stories from work colleagues, we decided we could not pass this up. As we went on vacation for our "Gorilla Trekking Experience" we soon realized that this trip was much more...this was the "Uganda Experience".
Day 1 - Fly - Dammam to Dubai to Nairobi to Entebbe
