Before coming to Saudi Arabia, I thought the weather was hot. And that the variation range was: hot, pretty hot, really hot, terribly hot, unbearably hot.
I am pleasantly surprised that at least in the month of November, the weather has been perfect. Two nights ago we closed the window for the first time because it felt a little chilly.
Today, the Riyadh weather forecast says high 71F, low 51F.
When I was walking last night, my hands were a bit cold. The rest was warm under my abaya. I found myself tucking my hands in the sleeves of my abaya, feeling way too much like Sister Mary Anyone. (Just to clarify, that’s not me in the picture. We aren’t allowed to wear anything but black!)
