When you drive out of the cities here in Saudi Arabia, it is not uncommon to see tents where bedouins live. Bedouins are the desert dwelling nomads of the Middle East. Many of the tents I have seen are equipped with generators for electricity and satellite dishes, and many have late model pickup trucks parked outside. The numbers of bedouins who roam and live in the deserts have reduced significantly with modernization and settling in cities, but there are still hundreds of thousands who call the desert home, not only in Saudi Arabia, but also in Jordan, Syria, Yemen, Egypt, Sudan, Iraq and many other Middle Eastern countries. I was amazed at the interesting location of this particular tent, on the side of a rocky mountain surrounded by the huge boulders. I would be afraid of falling rocks or a landslide!!!

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.
