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.

This mountain sunset photo was taken from a moving car on the highway from Madinah to Jeddah. I grew up in mountainous Arizona, and since Jeddah is fairly flat, I was spellbound by the mountains on the drive up to … Continue reading
Part of a larger wall hanging, this woven piece of art hangs in a friend’s home here in Jeddah. Some Muslims would not hang something like this in their homes since it is an animal and the Quran does not … Continue reading
