The first whole year I spent in Jeddah, I was beginning to think it never ever rained here. Imagine my surprise when I woke up one morning and looked out the window and saw this! Because it rains so rarely, Jeddah is not equipped with proper drainage, so consequently, many streets flood and lower areas are filled with ponds or large puddles. A week after the rain, there was still standing water in parts of the city.
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.
