These were my friends in Saudi Arabia, a few of which I have kept in contact with, but most are people who I have reconnected with through Facebook. They are listed here in alphabetical order along with their country(s) of origin. I asked each person to write me a letter describing his or her experiences living in Saudi Arabia. I was interested to see if there were similarities between our experiences. Excerpts from these letters are incorporated into the prints lining the walls.
