The old downtown part of Jeddah is home to the oldest bazaars, or souks, in the area. Some of the streets are so narrow that they are closed to traffic altogether, while others are just wide enough for one car to barely pass through. These streets are lined with one small shop after another, all crammed with goods and merchandise at bargain prices. There is often so much merchandise that it is hard to see what is available at the marketplace. Sometimes it hangs from the ceilings or is piled deep from the floors up. These are not the type of shops where little kids can run wild. Customers have to stand outside and point to what they want.
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.
