Default Some days this place really p's me off

We are all set to drive to Dubai (again) tomorrow for some medical tests, paperwork all in order, or so we think. We've been told other half needs a Saudi driving license before they will issue exit papers for the car . . . This is the third time we'll have driven out of the Kingdom but the first time we need a Saudi driving license - which is a blody joke itself as apparently something like 60% of drivers on the roads in Riyadh don't have a license of any sort . . . .

aaaaaagh. AND the weather is crap too.

Good luck with the medical stuff.

Enjoy the perks of being out of Saudi even if it is only the UAE!!!!

It is going to be so nice to be there - looking forward to a bit of normality - which is such a joke - going to Dubai for normality ? Shows just how crazy it is here

Thanks
