I adore looking in the bakery at the beautiful displays of cakes and other sweets. Saudis in general have a real sweet tooth.
Saudi hospitality dictates that sweets and tea or juice are automatically offered to guests. So it’s no surprise that diabetes and obesity contribute to health issues of the citizenry.
My husband does not have a sweet tooth, but I do – but he’s very good about not caving in to my cravings all the time. Honestly I have found that these scrumptious looking treats oftentimes don’t exactly taste as good as they look. So I manage to find joy and satisfaction in just looking and taking photos!
