I was stunned when I was walking through Old Jeddah’s Bab Makkah market recently and spotted a man in a red shirt transporting a huge leg of fresh meat by carrying it on his back through the marketplace! I was able to get a more detailed shot in the photo below, showing the man holding the bulky piece of meat with his bare hand, hanging it off the back of his head, neck and shirt. There is clearly no plastic wrap or paper at all visible between his hand, his hair, or his shirt and the meat. The time was about 11am and the day was very hot already. I can only imagine what he must smell like at the end of his work day!
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.
