All private villas here in Jeddah have tall walls surrounding them, so it is rare to get a glimpse of what exactly is behind those walls. Oftentimes only the home’s roof is visible from the outside. This villa has a small cool grassy area and room for parking cars. Some villas I have been to have a very small outdoor area which is completely tiled in between the villa and the surrounding walls. Outside the villa’s walls to the left is a vacant lot strewn with unsightly debris and garbage, as many vacant lots here in Jeddah are.
Above is a view of the empty lot next door to the villa. It’s a shame that there are so many empty lots here in Jeddah that are just used as dumping grounds. Many empty lots that I have seen are actually much worse than this one.
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.
