Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

About Blog - I am an American woman. In the fall of 2007, we uprooted our lives, our teenaged son, and left life as I always knew it for the desert sands of Saudi Arabia. I write this blog for the benefit of my friends and family that I left behind back home in America. These are my feelings, impressions, and experiences - the good, the bad, and the ugly.

About Blog - Welcome to The Turbulent World of Middle East Soccer by James Dorsey. Soccer in the Middle East and North Africa is played as much on as off the pitch. Stadiums are a symbol of the battle for political freedom; economic opportunity; ethnic, religious and national identity; and gender rights. This blog explores the role of soccer at a time of transition from autocratic rule to a more open society.
