In the next several months we plan to move into a new house, and I plan to find a job (the Intensive English Program at the local university is suffering from a terrible drop in enrollment, so they have no classes for the likes of me) and continue working on my novel based in -- where else? -- Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
This picture is of Ibrahim, a Bedouin of Petra, who led me into the park the back way the day after I met him at the Treasury. Petra was just as amazing as I had hoped.
Finally, this picture is my last image of Saudi Arabia and the Red Sea. I didn't know that it would be the last shot I might ever get of the Kingdom.
