There are many African men and women who travel to Saudi Arabia for the religious pilgrimmage, called the Hajj, and then end up staying on in the country in search of a better life than they had back in their native countries. For many, it is a meager existence. Many of the women are unable to find work so they resort to dumpster diving or begging. Others set up shop outside popular businesses where they sell handmade women’s prayer dresses or other products.
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.
