Taken one day in the mall a few months ago, this photo shows a couple of Saudi women walking by with a red headed little girl. The women are wearing the type of ultra conservative all black abaya that is one piece from the head to the toes and totally hides the female form – even the shoulders are not visible. Most women choose abayas that are more like a dress or coat with a separate scarf to cover the hair.
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.
