Relaxing on the Corner

This scene is taking place on the sidewalk corner in a busy industrial area of Jeddah. Apparently this is a meeting place for businessmen to relax on their breaks and share a chat and a cup of tea. There is a large thick carpet laid down on the pavement along with several cushioned armrests for comfort. The men in the photo appear to be enjoying themselves. Men here in this part of the world are generally quite sociable.

    I wonder what people would think if I brought some big pillows and a friend and sat on a corner sidewalk in EAGAN??

    I love the armrests!

    So many contradictions. Men can be sociable right on the corner and women can barely leave the house.
