After the student presentations, we were shown a PowerPoint presentation giving us general facts about Saudi Arabia. Before the presentation I really did not know too much about Saudi Arabia, but now I can really appreciate the country even more! The video showed us images of the different architectural buildings there, the cities, and pictures of some children celebrating their Independence Day! My favorite part was seeing just how modern the cities appear to be! I was amazed!!!
Following the presentation, we got to watch some students and members of the community show us how to do a traditional dance! I really enjoyed it, because although some of the guys seemed to be a little shy, they really got into it at the end!
After this performance, another student played us a traditional song on a traditional Saudi Arabian "guitar." It was really great, and I even got a video of it, so you can listen to it too!
I really enjoyed this cultural event and I cannot wait to go to the other ones in the future, and then in turn share them with you! Have a wonderful weekend and feel free to send me any questions you may have about life at Saint Michael's College, or college life in general.
