My World: I Never Forget A Face…

dscf3247-1-copy
…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).

Well, That’s My World for this week! That’s My World! offers a unique glimpse at life all over our planet. Take a peek at other people’s lives from all over the world by visiting That’s My World!

    A very funny and interesting post dear Susie! I indeed would not expect to see such a scene in Saudia Arabia! We also have street vendors in Istanbul, they walk among the cars when there is a traffic jam and try to sell bottled water, especially in hot summer days.

    Have a perfect week,

    Ciao!
