I had the immense pleasure of being invited to a desert dinner with the family of my dear friend, Saudi social media guru Thawah Alayyash.
While the lights of Riyadh could be seen in the distance, not a sound could be heard from urban civilisation. I fully understand why the bedouin like to return to the desert as often as they can.
My hosts were most welcoming and accommodating and the traditional bedouin meal of fried liver entrée and then kabsah (boiled sheep and rice with yoghurt – called mansuf in Jordan) was absolutely delicious.
I am truly enjoying my time here in Saudi meeting hunters and country people.
