Compound festivals

Compounds in Saudi have different festivals throughout the year. You must purchase a ticket and of course go through heavy security to enter any Western compound. It is like stepping back into a Western country with a Middle Eastern touch! The picture above shows a Country Western dance group. A band performed as well and handed out Cds at the end of their performance.  Of course all of these things are banned in Saudi but inside the compound it is a different world.
