  6. The shops, and stalls in the souk, are all so colourful, and the office buildings are quite uniquely shaped. Riyadh looks a very interesting place. Thank you for sharing your lovely pictures.

  7. The material and dresses shop is so gorgeous! And are those gold chains a headpiece?? Why? No one would see it under the burqa. Is it to be worn over?? Or is it something else entirely?
    Their office buildings are in such unusual shapes!!

  8. Those dresses look pretty and very ornate as is all that golden jewelry.

    The sure are creative with their architecture aren’t they.

  9. What is the weather like this time of year there? Hot, I assume – but dry as well? (Again, probably a dumb question, it being a desert).

          • I know when we arrived to saudi, no fast food, or local fast food, no malls, now it is just crazy! Really mall are every where, a simple grocery store, now a huge hyper one with a mall! It is just too much!

          • I completely agree, for me they’ve lost their essence. In their efforts to make Dubai shiny and new and all things huge and extreme, they’ve lost some heart as far as I’m concerned. I know people love it as it is now, and it’s all a matter of personal taste, but I loved the scruffy old souks and shops and restaurants…
