This is the scene right outside a large mall in Jeddah. There are dozens of men sitting around waiting. They are the drivers employed by many families in Saudi Arabia since women are not allowed to drive in this country. As in many countries around the world, shopping at malls is one of the favorite pasttimes of many women here. The drivers might drive the lady of the house to the mall and then wait outside until she is ready to be driven elsewhere. This is a very common scene here.
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.
