Al-Balad is the oldest district of Jeddah. This is where tourists come to see the architecture of the old historical buildings and walk around the city’s colorful souks where they can buy everything from incense to handmade leather sandals to fine gold jewelry. This building must have been quite beautiful in its day. The fact that people still reside in these old buildings is what really astonishes me though. Notice the lock hanging on the door and the electric box in plain view next to the door with the wire running into the inside.
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.
