Things here in Saudi are good.  As seems to be the norm in the KSA we aren't doing quite what was promised, but still are doing a decent job at producing a few medics.  A little boring some days, a "little different" than life in the United States.  I actually had about a week that I was teaching female students, then somebody complained and that got cancelled!  So now were sticking to the male students only.  Probably going to be here for another 14 months or so and then head out to the next strange place adventure!  Keep in touch, let me know what's going on in the UAE.  take care, Geoff
