Last weekend Scott and I headed to Abu Dhabi for the International Book Fair. There were booths from countries all over the world and there were so many books in Arabic as well. They also had food stands and places around the convention center where you could stop and read.

After checking out the books we headed over to “the tent” to see one of our favorite authors – Guy Delisle. He has written many graphic novel about what its like to be an expat in China, North Korea, Burma, and Jerusalem. Our friend Jess from Buffalo got us really interested in his books and we find them really comforting now that we’ve lived for a while in another country ourselves. We were so excited that we were able to hear Guy Delisle speak, talk to him, and get our books signed by him and all for free!
