Government and private Arabic schools have been on holiday since the beginning of January. So with yesterday being an unexpected day off, today was the day that 256,000 school children would be returning to the classroom. And after days of gorgeous blues skies and wonderful weather, this is what we were greeted with.
Thankfully, not everyone was on the road at 7:00 a.m. so the drive to school wasn't so bad.
By the time we arrived, the sun was trying its best to break through.
Of course, in this type of weather, there are always more accidents than usual and this country has already broken the record for highest traffic violations and accidents in the Arab World, and has one of the highest fatality rates in the entire world. Very sad statistics for such a small country.
Although the fog continued to clear throughout the day, there was a bit of haze returning as the sun began to set, so I have a feeling we are in for more of it tomorrow morning
Hope your week is off to a good start.
