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.

Wedding halls can be found all over Jeddah in every neighborhood. Many are quite elegant – fancy schmancy. Because of strict gender segregation customs in the past, weddings are usually separate events for men and women. Slowly some families are … Continue reading
