Most buildings here are finished in stone, tile, or marble, probably because it requires less maintenance and lasts longer in this brutal climate. I like the multi-colored stone that was used for this building. Typical Saudi-style residential apartment buildings here generally have several floors. The first floor is usually for covered parking and the lobby, and then the floors above are for the flats. I thought the windows were interesting looking too. This building is less than a year old and is built in a newer section of town where construction is booming.
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.
