This huge open mall area in an older section of downtown Jeddah is completely tiled. Businesses and shops surround it. As you can see, most of the men wear traditional clothing, and the only woman visible is wearing the black abaya and veil. Veils are not required but the majority of women here wear them.
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.
