It’s not unusual to see all kinds of vendors walking in the streets selling everything from gum, to water bottles, to toys, to flowers. Most of the vendors are young foreign men, but it’s fairly common to see young children – both boys and girls – trying to earn money selling wares on the streets. Many of the children are in the country illegally, having come with their families to make the religious pilgrimage, and then they never went back home. I wrote a story called “Still She Smiles” on my other blog, Susie’s Big Adventure, about one such young girl we met one evening at a Burger King. She is someone we will never forget.
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.
