Sunday Salon: Sorry for disappearing!

August 28, 2011

Somehow, I seem to have accidentally disappeared for most of this past week! It wasn’t really intentional – I just got really busy with orientation days for work and with settling into my new city. I’m still living in a hotel at the moment, which has challenges of its own to deal with. I’m really hoping to get my housing assignment soon … even a 5-star hotel gets old after a few weeks!

In the meantime, that means that I’m running about a week or so behind schedule for this year’s Ramadan Reading. What I’ve decided to do is simply to extend the theme month. So, instead of finishing up this week as planned (on Wednesday, which is probably going to be Eid), I’m just going to keep reading and posting daily reviews until I finish up with the books I brought with me for this purpose!

Don’t forget, you can always check up on the most updated version of the schedule for Ramadan Reading 2011 to see what’s coming up next.

In the meantime, here’s a little video of me riding a camel while on a desert safari a few days ago. Enjoy!

    Riding a camel in the desert, pretty cool (and I am sure it is HOT there!). I hope you find housing soon so that you feel like you’re settling in.
