Mada’in Saleh 4.

With our two Hungarian friends we met in the airport. I think of myself as pretty good at sarcasm, but the absence of dry Euro-sarcasm in my life here was made evident in their company. A couple of times I missed the sarcasm in their comments much to my embarrassment. I’ve just forgotten how to be subtly funny these days, it goes down like a lead balloon here, so I’ve regrettably cut that kind of humour out of my conversations in KSA. I can add that to the list of things I’ve lost whilst living abroad, as well as knowing how to speak English properly. This last sentence is just to make this comment even longer than it already is.
