I apologize for the poor quality of this photo – like many of my photos, it’s taken from a car whizzing by – but I think you won’t have any trouble seeing what I tried to capture here. This is a side street right off the main road I was traveling on. There are two men sitting on an old couch in the street, right next to a parked truck. Sights like this are not uncommon here in Jeddah. Many residential buildings and businesses often sport old worn-out dusty and discarded furniture outside for whoever to sit on. Most often it is furniture one would not normally think of as outdoor furniture. Usually it is right next to the building and not in the street like in this photo. You can see how close those tire tracks are to where these two guys are sitting, but they sure do look relaxed, don’t they?
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.
