Default Hafr Al Battin, KSA

Ispent my last two years (2009-2011) in KSA teaching in what was then The Community College of Hafr Al Battin, just South of Kuwait. That Community College is now a University. Any others experienced that strange part of the world ?

My other postings, Tabuk, Jeddah, Dhahran, were all much better !

Received an RfP for a project there many moons ago but it was deemed far too remote so we declined. Their football team are in the Saudi Premier league with a few foreign staff

It is bigger than most people think but is deffo a "hardship posting". It was part of Kuwair until nthe 1920s when The House of Saud did a deal with the Colonial Office who then administered the foreign affairs of the Sheikhdom
