More Riyadh

A store that started in Riyadh back in the 90's and was an attempt at something like a department store. It was expensive and didn't last long.

  3. Hi Lynz, any idea what an average cost was for a Camel back when you resided there?

    Love the pictures Lynz. I have some pics my brother sent me from his trip to somewhere in the Middle Ease, and he sent one of himself riding a camel. According to him it is not very comfortable, so avoiding that ride was wise, in my opinion. The height alone would keep me from it, and I’ve heard the odor is not the best, and they spit. I think I really prefer looking at the pictures.
    Thanks for sharing these. Hugs, A.

  10. So, did that department store just close down? I imagine the expensive goods just didn’t sell. I do love your mix of photos, Lynn, and as everyone has already said, those camels sneak in everywhere.

    • Well it was weird, at that time no real malls and no place to shop. The out door souks but they had nothing for us. so this came up but lasted maybe a year. I was so excited thinking it would be like a target

      • Yes, it seems strange that it didn’t last. Perhaps it was just too different for the local people at that time. I know from your other photos there are plenty of malls in Riyadh now. But I don’t suppose they’re the same as that single department store.

        • I think so it was just too different! now there are hyper stores every where. Panda and all kinds of grocery stores that carry clothing and everything else.There was one old mall when we arrived. So things have changed so much!

  11. So all the camel souks were places you could buy a camel to ride? People don’t eat them, do they?
