This is a typical single family villain Jeddah. Most private villas are quite large as most families have many children and domestic live-in workers, such as maids, cooks, and drivers. Practically all villas are built surrounded by a huge wall for protection and privacy. Each villa is like a fortresss. Oftentimes the courtyard is completely tiled in, with small areas for decorative plantings. Sometimes within the walls will be several dwellings where other family members reside, such as a second wife or siblings and their families.
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.
