Hi Wanda, I look forward to seeing some of your pictures of Costa Rica.
Riyadh is what it is...horrendous traffic, noise, concrete everywhere, not very pedestrian friendly; however I like my job and come pay day every month I am a bit more tolerant of my surroundings. This is where I work, so I try to maintain a positive outlook. A negative attitude is what tends to be soul sucking IMHO. ;)

LOL... Plenty of money until the oil runs out I supose...Riyadh is quite sterile as the anonoymous poster stated... a concrete jungle surrounded by sand. There really aren't all that many green spaces in the city. The Diplomatic Quarter is notably the best spot to be surrounded by greenery, other areas have smaller pockets of green...mostly various beige concrete landscapes.
