Random Memory

I lived in Saudi Arabia from 1979 until 1984 with my family. Traveling between Jeddah (the city where the international airport was located) and Yanbu (where we lived) involved a 350 kilometer drive north on a very boring road through the desert. It was not uncommon to see roadkill off to the side. What sort of roadkill does one see in Saudi Arabia? Camels. I'll leave the imagery to you.

ewww! That's some big roadkill.

Very large roadkill indeed. I was all the way over on the other side of the country When I lived in Saudi Arabia. Dharan for a few days, King Khalid Military City near Hafir Al Batin, and a few points beyond in the dusty places of Kuwait. Hope that the scenery and the work was more pleasant for you when you were there than it was for me.

Hi! How's it going?

That size of roadkill, usually comes with a rusting out wrecked car alongside the rotting camel.

Skeeter: Hi yourself! We'll have to swap Saudi stories sometime.

Snarkier-than-snarky: yes, those camels MESSED UP any car that hit them. Being the goofball he is, my dad pulled over to take pictures many times. And close ups. Grody.
