Surviving Riyadh

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia is the birth place of the Arab race and of Arabic, a language considered holy by Muslims. It’s also home to two Islam’s holiest cities, “Mecca and Medina” and host to modern, thriving, oil-rich metropolises.

However, Saudi Arabia is a country incredibly difficult to visit and the rights of women are restricted. Riyadh, its capital, is now a high-tech haven of glass, steel and concrete, home to hotels, even larger hospitals. King Khalid International Airport is the largest airport in the world by ground area (225 km²).

It is located 35 kilometres (22 mi) north of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and designed by the architectural firm HOK (Hellmuth, Obata, and Kassabaum).

In Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center, a world class research facility employs people from many countries a high percentage is North America. It was through this hospital that I was hired as a Research Associate.
