These two men were sitting outside a bedding shop. They each have a mug of tea, a very popular drink here in Saudi Arabia. Note the thermos on the ground, ready for refills. These men look as though they are brothers to me – they look quite a bit alike. My impression of men in this society is that they are more social with each other and more conversational than lots of the men I knew in the states. It seems that they would rather spend time talking with other men rather than watching sports on TV or playing around on the computer. Both men are wearing the traditional white thobe with loose white pants underneath.
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. 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 OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
