This handsome young man is wearing the traditional headgear typical of the Hijazi area of Saudi Arabia. This orange checkered cloth is called Imma or Immama and is usually worn by Hijazi men during celebrations and is folded and wrapped turban style around the head. People who live in the western region of the country, including Jeddah, Makkah, Madinah, Taif and other cities, are called Hijazis. Different parts of the country also have their own dialects, so it is easy to determine what area a Saudi hails from.
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. 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 OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
