  1. Hi Susie, great to hear from you! I hope all is well. Things are good in Phoenix especially now that the triple digit heat has abated.

    This is a huge building. There must be a lot of information to minister.

    Hi Susie! So nice to hear from you. And I’m glad that things are working out for you and your family.

    A very interesting building…and it’s “modernness” is fitting, I think, for the operations that work out of it…e.g. tv, radio, etc. Technology is certainly descriptive of the world today and will be even more so in the future. I don’t understand, though, why they would have the name of the building in English…

    Of course, that’s just one of the many things I don’t understand! 😉

    • Hi Jacob – Many businesses and offices here in Saudi Arabia have their signage in both Arabic and English. English is the required foreign language for public schools here. That’s one reason why I haven’t really felt the pressure to learn more Arabic – everyone wants to practise their English with me.

    i was going to say what a modern looking building this is. i would have guessed a more traditional structure to house govt agencies, but clearly i am wrong in that assumption.

    enjoy the weekend.

    hope that your hubby has long recovered and back to his normal activities.
