At night, the city of Jeddah comes alive with colored lighting everywhere. Ordinary buildings that just seem to fade into the background during the day suddenly stand out and seemingly cry for attention. My theory is that this has to do with Saudi Arabia being an evening society – many businesses are closed all afternoon and then stay open until late at night. This is especially true during Ramadan, when many Saudis switch their days and nights since they are required to fast during the daytime.
