Next week, I’m heading off for a visit to Saudi Arabia–at my own expense–to keep in touch with the country and my Saudi friends. It’s just over two years since I’ve been there and I need to see and hear for myself just how things are changing. Call it “ground-truthing” as I check that my perspectives are still accurate.
I’ll travel via London and spend a few days there, meeting with Saudi journalists and others, too. I plan to be in the UK from the 20th-25th, then the Kingdom from the 25th-31st. If Saudi or other bloggers would like to get together, please contact me at the address given on the “Contact” page of this blog and I’ll see what I can fit into the schedule.
