In the early days of Aramco ExPats, imagining our photo galleries filling up with photos depicting life in and around Aramco camps was an exciting prospect. Wendy Cocker was up to the task. She had already created two photos-on-CD compilations, one titled "401 Arabian Sights" and "Barnaby of Arabia," the name of an adventurous stuffed bear who often made a guest appearance in Wendy's photos.

We recently found broken pieces of dishware that have the old Aramco brand. We have some questions: Does anyone know about this dishware? When it was used? Do we have an Aramcon who restores broken ceramics?

In 1941 Nestor "Sandy" J.

Painting on silk has become a passion ever since I visited Singapore and met Said Sarkasi, the “Baron of Batik”. Since then, I’ve modified the process a bit. What I do now is much easier for students and for me; I have never had a student leave a class unhappy!
