Old historic downtown Jeddah is home to one of the oldest open air marketplaces called Bab Makka, which means Door to Mecca. The narrow streets are blocked from traffic and are lined with booth after booth of various vendors offering wares from fresh produce to clothing to meats to jewelry, for blocks and blocks. Many shops and restaurants decorate the outside of their businesses during Ramadan with a festive print like you see here all over this booth.
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 and teenage son. 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'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
