This photo gives you an idea of what happens in the middle of the day in Saudi Arabia when it’s prayer time. Muslims are required in Islam to pray at five specific times of the day. All stores are compelled to close during these prayer times. Many of the street vendors simply abandon their carts, head off to the nearest mosque to pray, and then return. No one bothers their stuff in their absence. Getting used to the constant closings of businesses has not been easy for me. Many businesses stay open quite late in the evenings to make up for the closings during the day.
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.
