One. Step. Closer!

We were notified today that our validated college degrees are on their way back to Nashville!! While it took us a looong time to decipher what exactly they wanted from us, I must say I'm impressed with how quickly the Cultural Mission processed this paperwork.

But now, we still have to wait. We also were notified by our new school that we have to put the brakes on submitting our paperwork to the embassy because they need to change my authorization letter. Apparently they wrote that I've accepted a job at the boys' school, which is illegal in KSA. So now they've got to write a new one, submit that to the appropriate authorities in Saudi, and then mail it to us.

But really, it doesn't matter, because we're on step closer to getting our visas, and that means the giddy butterflies have begun!!!

Sooo excited!

Vicariously yours,

      Wow! You are digging way back in the archives! I'd be happy to talk to you about working in Saudi Arabia. Do you have an email address or other contact information?

  3. Dear Amber,
    My wife and I have accepted positions at DAS and we will be heading there this August. I was wondering if you would be willing and able to answer some of our questions about working and living there. We have thoroughly enjoyed reading your blog and having lived in Bahrain for six years previously; enjoyed your cultural observations. My email is mr.m.f.morrow@gmail.com.

    Sincerely Yours,

    Matt Morrow
