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.

It’s nice seeing a fun business vehicle like this here in Saudi Arabia. Too many times I feel that actual fun is frowned upon here…
Jeddah is full of buildings with interesting architectural designs. Many have lots of tinted reflective glass windows incorporated into the designs. I believe this building is a car dealership.
I still don’t understand – why is it okay for a huge sign like this to be on display here in Saudi Arabia, when images of women’s arms, faces, or with other skin showing in magazines or on products are … Continue reading
