…but in your case, I’ll make an exception! Admittedly, this isn’t exactly something you would expect to see in Saudi Arabia. But actually, there were two men wearing these Groucho disguises walking in between the lanes of traffic, trying to sell their wares. Street vendors here sell everything from water guns to cotton candy to kid’s blow-up toys. I do try to be discreet when sneaking their photos because when they see me with my camera, they expect me to buy whatever it is they’re selling. To give you an idea of the prices, the only things we have ever bought from the street vendors so far has been cold bottled water for 1 Riyal (which is 25 cents US) and a fresh flower lei for 5 Riyals (about $1.25 US).
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.
