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.

I saw these Koran stands in a stationary store here in Jeddah. I’ve seen them before but not such a wonderful selection of them. They come in a variety of sizes. The taller floor stands above are very similar to … Continue reading
This highly embellished outfit in a Jeddah shop window caught my eye. There is gold and silver trim on the bodice and hundreds of small gold and silver metal embellishments all over the garment. The sleeves are belled, the … Continue reading
Just a random collection of photos for you today. I thought the first photo looked rather artsy – I like the compostion, the lines, and the traditional menswear. The second photo is an attractive Asian themed children’s clothing shop window … Continue reading
