Charles, at VIP Park

Behind the houses on the street we lived on in Saudi Arabia is a private compound, owned by the Royal Commission and used to house V.I.P.s. We all called it the V.I.P. Park: it has a barbecue pit, tent with carpeted floor and seating on cushions, a "kitchen/serving" area complete with refrigerators, a pool, tennis courts, parkland and a soccer field. If we asked permission, and if no V.I.P.s were in town, we could get the use of the park for a day or evening party. This was one such party!
