This time around, I had no intentions of contemporaneous blogging or even photographing elements of the pilgrimage. So here is the deferred blogging, along with some of the very few photographs I took.
We entered Saudi Arabia via Trinidad to London to Muscat to Medinah. Left on Monday evening, and reached Medinah in the early hours of Thursday morning. Reached the hotel in time for fajr salaat at the Prophet’s Mosque.
Customs & immigration were relatively quick, and there was little waiting to board the coach and depart for the hotel.
Of course, the sight and site of significance for most of our four days in Medinah is pictured below:
