So where are you from?
Got any kids?
Hobbies?
Whatever else

Oh and don't forget, different time zones and the weekend isn't Sat/Sun, so don't get shirty if you don't get a reply straight away
My name is Teresa. I'm a Canadian currently living in the US and marrying my American fiance in July when he returns from KSA for a 2 week visit. I'm working through paperwork for my Visa, and hopefully get to join husband sometime in August...

I love cooking, dinner parties, social events, dancing, yoga, making new friends, reading, camping, hiking, rollerblading, cycling and much more. Not to shabby with games.

We live in a villa off-compound in Riyadh - only accomodation we could find given waiting lists & lack of connections through David's KSA company. Once there, I will be anxious to get out of the house and make some friends - women friends for me to hang out and couples for us to socialize with.

There - no more lurking!
Teresa

Hi Teresa, hope all goes well with the wedding and the moving over here in August. I have only been here for a short time but the best advise could give you is get in to a compound! There are available villas on some of the smaller compounds here and many of these compounds are pretty good. If you aren't working and want to socialise then you must tell your other half to sort accomodation out in a compound ASAP. If you live out of compound (especially as a woman) your mobility will be very restricted.

Just notice the introduction on The Sand Pit.

I am Andy from Glasgow.

I am going to be in Abu Dhabi for a few months and then possibly moving to Dubai.

I used to like socialising on a Saturday. I am stuffed coz of their dodgy weekends being Thurs-Sat and work on a Sunday.

Hope to meet some of you out and about while I am here.
