Well what can I say...

here I am sat in Madina, the blessed city, typing away, I cant believe it myself, I may just get one of those Saudi woman body guards to pinch me....

so much to say but how to start, eventually it will all come out in some sort of order but right now I seriously am dumbstruck and lost for words (doesn't happen often I know)

subhannallah it really was my time, for a week I was convinced that it was not meant to be but it happened and when I got that call to say that 50 visas where obtained, well what can I say, I jumped at the chance, and brave heart I didn't have to cross the border :)

I really wanted to up date my blog on a regular basis but in Mecca there where no internet cafes for woman sob sob, and I was not staying in a hotel but in apartments so I was internet less, which was ok for the first week or so but then withdrawal symptoms kicked in, first thing I did when I got to the hotel was ask about internet access to which amazingly they have, so here I am typing about internet when I could be typing about hajj experience duuuuuuuuh.

wallahi guys I pray that each and every single one of you get the chance to see the kabbah and pray there for yourself and soon inshallah because its truley awe inspiring and words can describe the sight, already I am missing Mecca.

I prayed for you all and I am now gonna leave the internet for some poor other deprived soul by the name of hayak.

will try to update someother time inshallah.
