New construction is everywhere in this city of nearly 4 million, and this photo shows buildings that have gone up in one part of town in the past year. These are all residential buildings that may have one or two apartments on each floor. All Saudi housing is designed with at least two living rooms, usually with its own separate entrances. This is so that when guests are received, women can enter without being seen by men and vice versa. There is strict segregation between the sexes here – no mingling or socializing between men and women.

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.
