There are not many signs of Christmas at all over here in Saudi Arabia because the only religion allowed is Islam. This is my third Christmas here. It’s a sad time for me being away from my family and friends, but I try to do little things to make it special for my son. And he makes me laugh.
Anyway, I picked this photo for today’s holiday post because of the green and red lights. This unusual building is actually a pet shop called The Amazon. If you look closely, the outside of the building looks rather cavelike, with large rough rocks and stalactite-looking points hanging down from above. I’ve never been inside so I can’t describe what it’s like for you – But the outside is quite interesting.
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.
