Hello, come one, come all snow yetis.
(I am so sorry)
I have lived in two countries in my life, and in both of those countries, my family managed to find a desert (albeit one of them was a desert island, so it wasn’t that hard). I’ve lived in California, in America, and in Bahrain, in the Middle East.
I have also visited Dubai, Ethiopia, and Turkey.
I’m happy to answer any questions I can. Be they about climate, aridity, animals, culture… or other questions.
When I moved to Bahrain it was several years after the Arab Spring and there were lots of protests and… well, a lot of problems there. I’m happy to answer what I can about civil unrest and what protests of that nature look like, however, I can’t answer much about the politics and ins-and-outs of what triggered everything there as a) I wasn’t fluent in the language when I arrived and didn’t understand much of the conversation b) I was a teenager when we left and c) not native, therefore I really don’t have the answers someone who’d lived there their entire life would.
Well, fire away. No question is too detailed, ridiculous, or small!
