The diary of a Saudi man, currently living in the United Kingdom, where the Religious Police no longer trouble him for the moment.

In Memory of the lives of 15 Makkah Schoolgirls, lost when their school burnt down on Monday, 11th March, 2002. The Religious Police would not allow them to leave the building, nor allow the Firemen to enter.

I know I'm a day late, but.... 

....I can't resist an idolatrous celebration of a Christian Saint's Day.

Actually, these parakeets are fortunate enough not to live in Saudi Arabia, but across the Causeway in Bahrain, where there are no Religious Policemen to prevent such outdoor displays of affection. They actually live in the garden of my friend Mahmood of "Mahmood's Den". When they are not energetically trying to start a family, they are systematically demolishing his house in order to to get nesting materials.

Great photo, Mahmood.
