Raf’s World: Saudi Through a Child’s Eyes
From the moment he was born, my wife and I wanted Raf to live a life of carefree abandon. Unconstrained by western conformity, we raised our son on a tropical island, taught him how to surf, and took him traveling through Mindanao. In his sixth year, my work contract took him away from Siargao to Saudi Arabia. Raf’s world had suddenly widened to include the most closed country in the world. While we worried about how to survive Saudi, Raf just seized every moment. In doing so, he has taught us all how to live.
