Week ending March 4, 2016
This week ends with me on an adventure... actually, no it never ends.. the adventure continues and I love it! I had another exciting week as the SHE Manager, what's not to love about managing a SHE department?!!! (SHE: Safety, Health and Environment)
At the moment I am 2000 km away from my work in Jizan Saudi Arabia and find myself in Doha, Qatar where I have come with my friend and co-worker Ricardo Santos, a Portuguese National, with whom I travel in and out of Saudi to have our visas stamped every 30 days. We flew from Abha which is about 2 1/2 hours northeast of Jizan and arrived late Thurday which is the capital of the wealthiest (per capita) of all nations on earth. Not unlike Dubai with its exorbitant shops, architecturally stunning sky scrapers and more Porsches, Lamborghinis and Feraris than you can shake a stick at. We are staying at the Hilton and enjoyed a day on the beach as well as a couple of trips to the local market which is known as Souk Waqif.
