We were hoping for one but found 3 Brat KSA Reunion attendees who are happy to share their travel experiences with us via Facebook or travel blogs!  Meet our fabulous correspondents who will soon be back in Kingdom.:

Crystal Uecker-Maxwell (DH '91)

How many years has it been since you were last in Saudi Arabia?
Last time in kingdom was in 1999, so it's been 15 years. My parents were there from 1980-2000. I went to the Dhahran Main Camp schools from k-9, and my 9th grade yr was during the Gulf War - Desert Storm.
What made you decide to attend the KSA Reunion?
My sister and I are traveling together along with my dad. My sister and I travel a lot together, so one of us suggested it and the other said sure, it's just what we do.
What are you most looking forward to seeing again? My old house, the neighborhood, the schools...and gold shopping in Khobar. I'm also looking forward to seeing for the first time Shaybah, which my dad was the project manager on when there was nothing but desert, and Madain Saleh. Petra in Jordan has been on my list to see, so this will be close.
Strangest thing someone has asked you to bring back from your trip?
No one has asked me to bring back anything!
Lisa Jacobs (DH '81)
How many years has it been since you were last in Saudi Arabia?
I left in July 1982 and have not been back since.
What made you decide to attend the KSA Reunion?
I have always wanted to go back, but I've been interested even more since hearing stories from others like Gary Barnes and Diana Lynn who attended previous reunions.
What are you most looking forward to seeing again?
I'm looking forward to seeing my old house, 1175, on the corner of 11th and 8th Streets in Dhahran, but in general to walking around camp to the library, theater, snack bar and other old haunts. I want to see the Big Rock at the school.
Strangest thing someone has asked you to bring back from your trip?
Bahraini pearls.

Diane Christofferson (DH '74)

How many years has it been since you were last in Saudi Arabia?
I went to the 2000 reunion but left as a child in 1969 (age 11). So 15 years since reunion visit and 46 years since last lived there.

What made you decide to attend the KSA Reunion?
I wanted to go home again. The 2000 reunion was so wonderful and I know this one will be also. This one I think there will be a lot more Brats my age attending - can't wait to see them.

What are you most looking forward to seeing again?
My old house 810-J Street. The desert - all of it. The beach and the Persian Gulf.

Strangest thing someone has asked you to bring back from your trip?
A hookah pipe.


Safe travels, ladies!  We are all looking forward to your travel reports and pictures!

    How does one hear about future KSA trips so I may take my family to the land I grew up? @crystal since you are going gold shopping I could use a new necklace. Yellow gold, wheat style 20 inch length ;) -Nate
