    SO interesting to read. Loved discovering your site today, we’ve lived in the Middle East for nearly a decade, but I’ve been so busy wrangling kids between places we often miss these underlying stories. But oh I remember the bats in Bahla Fort – kids thought it was great, me not so much!!

      Hahaha! Yes, sooo many bats! Wow, a decade! I think the Middle East is one of those regions that’s difficult to grasp in full, because it’s so old and its history so varied. I mean, you can visit it over and over again and not see anything insightful, like all my previous visits before this one! I think the Middle East needs to be approached with the self-awareness that this is humanity, that whatever it has been, we all will be in time – because it is more ancient and has had more time to go through the changes the rest of us should have the humility to expect to go through someday.
