Smile Friendship Al Khobar?

Hi all, I am an American male living in Khobar at the moment, the Meridien actually, and I will probably be living here for the rest of the year. Anyone out here just like me are also looking for some friendship ? ( Working 14 hours a day is just too boring for me.) I have been working here for 2 weeks now and I can say my social life is at a all time low - 100%. If anyone here willing to take on another friend please let me know. [email protected]

I lived for two months in Al Khobar and also worked long hours. Only relief was to get away at weekends by crossing the causeway to Bahrain. Used to go the the Gulf Hotel, good british pub.

Also plenty of Americans at Saudi Aramco. Check out the Aramco expats forum at:
http://www.aramcoexpats.com/

Someone there may be able to give you a few pointers to social life and nights out.

Thanks Macscot for your advise. But im afraid since I am not employed by Aramco, they might not let me into they places. Looks like all the fun is happening inside their compounds.

Not sure if there is a Middle East branch for an American-expat forum - might be worth googling for one. But I am sure if you are able to contact some Saudi Aramco employees, they will invite you in as a friend (they are allowed visitors). Just make sure you carry your passport at all times - else you won't get in to any Saudi Aramco compounds (if invited) without one.
