Whenever we are out and about in the city of Jeddah, once the car stops at a red light there are usually vendors of all kinds who will approach the car, similar to the States with the newspaper vendors and charity collectors. Here in Saudi Arabia you’ll find young kids selling gum or candy, or men selling water bottles, kids’ toys, or other items. This guy is selling fragrant leis made of jasmine flowers for 5 Saudi Riyals, which is about $1.25 US. I’m not sure how much fresh leis cost in Hawaii, but I’m sure it’s considerably more.
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.
