Daily Prompts: Salad Days.
Is there a period in your own personal life that you think of as the good old days? Tell us a story about those innocent and/or exciting times (or lack thereof)
No, not exactly. But I think about my teenage life as a lot of fun in a life with good music and lots of friends.
Actually I don’t feel very comfortable with thinking in terms of “good old days”. I like more to think about periods in my life that brought a lot of experiences to me.
The time in my life that brought lots of interesting and exciting memories to me is when I lived in the United Arab Emirates. So different from my usual life in Sweden. I had the opportunity to get to know many arab friends in the country as well as arab friends from other countries – from the Middle or Far East – yes friends from all over the world. I lived in both Abu Dhabi and Dubai. We travelled all over the seven Emirates. This is the period in my life that I appreciate the most. People were so friendly and openminded. I learnt a lot about humans, different cultures and ways of living.
This happened in the early 80-ties.
