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.

Within this photo there are at least 7 Arabic business signs showing. I love the big colorful Tourism sign – it looks like a party.
This might be one large chain restaurant that you might be surprised to see here in Saudi Arabia – Popeye’s. There is also KFC, but judging from my observations, the Saudi chicken restaurant chain called Al-Baik is the most popular.
I don’t see many motorcycles driving around Jeddah, but there is a local Harley-Davidson dealership none-the-less.
