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.

This is an outside wall mural of a tailor shop here in Jeddah which specializes in custom thobes, the traditional long white dress that Saudi men wear. Although this image is obviously very old, the business itself (below) looks very modern and minimalist, as well as classy, crisp and clean. Perhaps the man in the image was the founding father of the business and the mural is a tribute to him. This wall mural is quite large as you can see in the photo below and is located on the corner of a very busy intersection for all to see. I love the integration of the very old with the very new which typifies Jeddah.
