We got lost!

On the way to our friend's farm we got lost! The problem is that once on the outskirts of Al-Khobar, all the street signs gradually change completely to Arabic. Since we are shamelessly ignorant of the language of the country we are visiting...We ended up almost to Hafr and heading to Kuwait!

The highway signs that showed us we were lost. Cell phone reception was sporadic, but we finally raised our friend and he guided us back to the right turn-off.

The sandstorm was a little scary - like snow, it blanketed the horizon and visibility was sketchy. but then we saw the camels...Camels are protected in Saudi Arabia. They wander specific areas of the countryside. The Arabians have races with them, as well as use them for transport and tourist rides.
