Juice Bar

This photo was taken inside the lobby of a modern upscale juice bar/restaurant.  The mosaic structure features running water that empties into a pool, providing soothing sounds.  Most restaurants do not play piped in music, since many Muslims believe that music is forbidden by Islam – it’s a murky subject which is debated by disagreeing Muslim clerics.   Anyway, I loved the fruit basket displays that were placed around the room, as well as the lovely mosaic tilework.  It all looked so clean and welcoming to me.

    Hi Susie, I don’t like the piped in music, either! It’s not a religious thing, though, just a matter of taste.

    What an adventure you’re living!

  5. Hi Elaine – Glad you liked the photo. Thanks for commenting.

    Hi Marahm – The produce here really IS amazing. I was eating a tomato yesterday and remarked to my husband about how much flavor it actually had compared to tomatoes in the states. Good stuff here!

    Hi Tash – No, I haven’t read that book but it sounds really interesting. Thanks for the info!

    Looks like a beautiful rival to Jamba Juice 🙂
    Interesting comments about music. (BTW – Did you read “Bookseller of Kabul” about an Afgany family written by a Swede?)

    Ah, my favorite Saudi subject– abundant produce! Gives me a warm feeling, and brings back happy memories of juicing hundreds of carrots, gaining weight on mangos, and cooking puddings with bannana and persimmon.

    Let’s not get going on the vegetables- I might have to devote a whole post about that subject on my blog.

    I agree! The warm colors of the fruit go nicely with the cool blues and greens.
