This lovely beach is at a resort just outside of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The turquoise blue Red Sea beckons swimmers on this hot day. But wait! Be sure you read the sign on the post of the charming thatch umbrella first. It’s written in Arabic, but my husband told me it says women are not allowed to wear swimsuits. Here in this society, women can only appear in public wearing long loose fitting black cloaks, called abayas. No matter how hot it is outside. Darn! And here I thought it meant we could go skinny dipping!!! (#1 in a series of 5)

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.
