Individual homes here in Arabia, called villas, are usually quite large and generally have a solid 8-10 feet tall wall around the perimeter of the property. The home takes up most of the space inside the walls. There is likely a small totally tiled courtyard, although some homes have large beautiful courtyards with small grassy areas. To afford even more privacy, slatted privacy fences extend above the solid walls to prevent viewing into the courtyard from higher windows in neighboring buildings.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
