I was working a nine week contract in the UK to evaluate a new desalination plant to be installed in Al Jubail. I had to visit site to meet with the prospective bidders to do a technical evaluation of their bids.
There was a team of four that flew to Saudi Arabia. I was familiar with the country having worked there for a year in Al Khobar so was not at all fazed by the lengthy immigration procedure. We arrived late at the hotel around midnight and when I got to my room I ordered a Pizza from room service. I foolishly ordered a seafood pizza, being very tired I was not really thinking.
Anyway I ate the pizza delivered to my room and got horribly ill during the night.
the next day I was so poorly I had to be taken to hospital to have my stomach pumped out and put on a drip and antibiotics. I manged to attend the meetings the next four days but felt fairly unwell the whole visit.
I should probably have complained to the management but just couldn't be bothered as I was so unwell.
DON'T EAT SEAFOOD PIZZA IN ARABIA!!!!!!!!
