Goodbye Montana

So today was our last day in the state of Montana. We spent the day doing meetings and had a chance to meet Governor Brian Schweitzer who used to work in Saudi Arabia in the 1980’s and spent seven years there. It was certainly refreshing to meet an American official who lived in our country and know about our culture. Tomorrow morning we will fly to Montgomery, Alabama in our third stop to learn more about the civil liberties movement. It should be interesting.

  1. Yes, that is something I would like to be part of as well. I think it was the first movement that ever sparkled other organizations in the world to stand up against discrimination. Enjoy!

  2. Ahmed,
    Montana, Alabama, and Wyoming are not my kind of states. I hope you get a chance to visit Oregon, Washington State, and Idaho. Of course, if you didn’t visit California we can say you’ve not seen the states really.
    The thing is that the knowledge you’re getting is unique and worth all kind of sacrifices. Enjoy your trip to Alabama. I’m sure they’ll take you to the famous church.

  3. Many Americans learned about Saudi culture on Sep 11, 2001. It was a profound lesson as to what Saudi culture is about.

    That said, I’m glad you had a good time in America. We don’t mind Saudi visitors who do not come to do us evil, if we can find them.
