I snapped this photo as we were buzzing by in the car. It points out an exit for the road to Makkah (or Mecca), and warns drivers to be on the lookout for bicyclists, horse drawn vehicles, motorcyclists, and pedestrians along the road. The sign also indicates that the speed limit is 5 in the lower right corner. Makkah receives millions of visitors every year as Muslims make the pilgrimage (called Hajj or Omra) to the holy city. Most visitors arrive by bus or car, but I guess enough make the trip by these other forms of transportation to warrant this sign!
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.
