This is part of the beautiful Red Sea Mall in Jeddah. There is an open lounge area below with a tiled in section that has those fountains that shoot water up from the floor. This is near the food court, which boasts Starbucks and Cheescake Factory, among others. Shopping is a huge family pasttime here in Saudi Arabia. It is one of the few activities that families can actually participate in together in the presence of mixed company. Some malls here in the country, however, do have restrictions which ban single men from trolling the malls. This cuts down on contact between unrelated men and women who might try to hook up using Bluetooth or exchanging phone numbers the old fashioned way by slipping them a little piece of paper or a business card.
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.
