Friends, this is probably my last post from Riyadh.
I leave for India tonight, maybe for good.

As I get ready to leave, I leave you with this image of a ladybird on a leaf that came to my little garden in Riyadh only once and left me with a few macros by way of memory.
It crawls patiently along the expanse of a leaf, heading towards a sunlit horizon.
Maybe I am doing the same, figuratively.

Goodbye and good luck to all!
I will soon rejoin you from India.
Insha Allah!!
