The holiday break is officially over and like everyone says, life here will get back to normal. I'm still trying to figure out what "normal" is, so stay tuned!
Eid & Something New
Happy Eid to fellow Muslims, and all blog readers alike. I kept trying to write a post about the difference between Eid celebrations in Riyadh, versus back home in the States with my family, but I was too home sick/nostalgic/emotional--whatever you want to call it--to make it past a single paragraph without exiting the screen, lingering hesitantly over the little box that would pop up each time asking me, "Are you sure you want to leave this page?" I think before I came here I was never really sure that I was ready to leave a familiar place and live in such a drastically different environment. I don't think that anyone can ever truly be sure of what lies ahead, but today I was thinking about how happy I am that I made the leap of faith and tried something new.
