During Ramadan, the month during the year when Muslims fast during the day, restaurants in Saudi Arabia are mostly closed during the daytime. Carry-out restaurants experience a huge surge in business in the late afternoon, an hour or two before sundown, when the fast can be broken, and then again at about 2am, when many Muslims eat again before sunrise. This photo was taken at about 11pm, in between the busiest times for this restaurant. The canopy out in front is very typical to see during Ramadan when many restaurants set up sales tables outside to accommodate the huge influx of customers during the peak times.
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.
