I believe in a purpose greater than
my little plans and designs…
for why else would I be here?
Thus shall I sit with it…
blog about it…
attempt to make peace with it.
For wherever I be…
there I am…
the rest is a matter of perception.
Thou I may weep
for what I know not…
I pray my soul to speak.

My first sunrise in Al-Khobar…
in keeping with the one featured in the opening scene…
of the video posted on Day 39.
The delegation will have traveled
from the east coast of The Kingdom at Al-Khobar…
to Riyadh in the center of The Arabian Desert
& onto the west coast at Jeddah
or vice versa… :)

The featured ship in the video… is known as a Dhow…
Typically sporting long thin hulls, dhows are trading vessels primarily used to carry heavy items, like fruit, fresh water or merchandise, along the coasts of Eastern Arabia (Arab states of the Persian Gulf), East Africa, Yemen and some parts of South Asia (Pakistan, India, Bangladesh).
