Marhaba! Expat in the city part one…

Riyadh, in itself, is a modern city, complete with its fare share of skyscrapers. But there was something very warm and friendly in it. The people. Part of our experiences as a traveller are built on the interactions with the people. As with any big city, Riyadh too had a lot of immigrants from several…

Getting Leh ed: Pangong Tso
