Smile Hello from Riyadh

I just moved here from Ireland. I am currently living in a hotel and trying to settle in.
I'm looking for a compound to stay in. I'm on my own, but if this all works out then my wife will join me.


It would be good to find some place to watch the up coming World Cup matches. If you are asking which sport then move along; nothing to see here.

Hi Simon,

Like you I am new to Riyadh and waiting for my future wife to join me after our wedding in September. I am here with another friend from Yorkshire, were based in Granada, board and struggling to find social groups to join. Everything seams to be word of mouth from what i can make out and were not going on compound until June.

Cheers
Gareth
Fancy a beer : )

I am sure it's possible to obtain alcohol, but it's still against the law and therefore is something that should not be encouraged. The penalties if caught are severe.
