This is a very typical street scene in a business section of Jeddah. In this man dominated society, it’s not unusual to just see mostly men only on the streets. One man is walking in the street while talking on his mobile phone. He is wearing jeans and the small white traditional cap which in Saudi Arabia is called kuffiya. Two more men are standing in the street talking. One wears the very traditional Saudi clothing of the long white dress (thobe) and the red and white checkered scarf called shumagg. All the men sport open toed sandals on their feet.
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.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
