March Madness in Arabia

dscf3811

Basketball is a popular sport here in the Kingdom. March marks the end of the season, complete with a big championship playoff. An official here is handing over the 1st place trophy to a member of this year’s winning team from Mecca. Notice that the crowd consists of only men, mostly dressed in the traditional white dress called thobe.
