In the mountains of Taif, Saudi Arabia, we stopped at this Egyptian man’s road side stand, where he sold fresh fruits and vegetables, and freshly roasted corn. He had quite a fire going on his makeshift roaster. Some of the kernels were blackened and it tasted much like popcorn but with a totally different texture, of course. It was good, but I think I would have liked it a little bit better with a sprinkle of salt and maybe even some melted butter on it! Each ear of roasted corn cost 2 riyals, which is about 50 cents US. Once we were all served and chomping away, the vendor relaxed and enjoyed a cigarette.

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.
