Postcards from Jubail 1
Landed in Jubail on the 20th of October, after several months of delays to take up an offer with SABIC.
After what I had heard about Saudi Arabia, the passage through Dammam Airport was a breeze. In fact the customs officer told me to enjoy my stay here.
Traveling from Dammam to Jubail in the company provided transport – a Toyota Camry – driven by a Sri Lankan driver (Jaya). Jaya was chatting away while driving at a rock steady 120 kmph.
First view of the desert. It ocurred to me that Saudi Arabia was mostly desert. The specks in the distance was camels.
