I see things like this on a daily basis here in Saudi Arabia. Many times older furniture that has been discarded is simply moved outdoors and used until it falls apart or is replaced by newer old discarded furniture. I’ve shown photos of this before, like when a building caretaker who spends a lot of time outside will relax in an old chair on the side of the building. Since it rarely rains here, there’s not much of a chance that the furniture will get ruined from rain, but I would imagine it gets awfully dirty from the dust. This man sits outside between two businesses and he’s talking on a mobile phone. I’m not sure if he’s a business owner or a worker, but he is wearing the traditional white thobe that Saudi men wear. Patio furniture isn’t used so much here except maybe within the walls of private villas, next to the swimming pool. Many times for private outdoor barbecues or gatherings, red carpets and cushions are rented for the evening.
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.
