Weetziebat Says "HI" from Saudi Arabia

  1. I got a postcard from Weetz yesterday........she is having the time of her life in Saudi Arabia! She's moving into a 2-bedroom apt. next week (from an efficiency) and taking a course in ophthalmic nursing, but she plans to switch to the ER working nights soon. She says it's really hot over there right now but she has access to a pool, and the shopping is "fabulous"

    She says Hi to everyone here on allnurses, she misses us, but as soon as she can get a computer, she'll check in.

    Just thought you'd all like to hear how she's doing I'm going to write her this weekend, so if you have any messages for her, please let me know. Thanks!

    mljrn, Does she not have access to the internet there? It sounds like things are going very well for her with all she wrote, but I think I'd have a difficult time with no internet access.

    I bet the shopping there IS fabulous!

    Thanks for passing this message on to us all here!

    Upon re-reading your post, I see she just needs to get a puter. Hope she gets one soon. I miss her posts!

    Hellllo Marla,
    Tell Weetz hello, I will say a prayer for her continued enjoyment over there, but to be careful. My niece in Iran has lived over there for years and still cannot get used to some of the rules. She says it is getting time for her and family to come home.

    I'll tell her........yanno, I must have no sense of adventure, because I can't even imagine going someplace like the Middle East! Of course, I wouldn't go ANYWHERE I wasn't allowed to even drive a car, but that's just me.......I don't want to go anywhere that I don't speak the language or understand the culture, and that lets out just about everywhere but the United Kingdom, Canada, Mexico, and Spain. :uhoh21:

    Wow, I'm impressed with her sense of adventure. We were invited to the United Arab Emirates for a couple of weeks and declined (I personally would have declined anyway, just because of the time and distance away from my son, but my employer declined on my behalf, too) If things were different in the world, it is something I would have loved to do. More power to her for going for it!
