I have visited your beautiful country. I snapped the photo nearby of your lovely red sand dunes as I drove from Riyhad to Al Khobar. Twenty-two questions is too many to deal with in a single post, so I will batch the questions and answers into a series of posts. Links will appear in the table nearby as those posts become available.

For now, Ma’a salama (معالسلامة/Good bye)
