Theme Day: Smell - Basil on the Street

It was a pleasant surprise to stumble across this healthy fragrant bush of basil growing outside a building in Jeddah.  Someone must obviously be tending to it otherwise it would die from lack of water wince it rarely rains here.

Today is the first of the month, which means it's theme day for City Daily Photo bloggers.  City Daily Photo is an online community of photo bloggers from around the world,  sharing the wonders of their area of the world pictorially with others.  Each month there is a different theme.  This month's theme is "Smell."

Please visit the City Daily Photo portal to view other participants' entries for today's theme day of "Smell."

Jeddah: More Abandoned Cars

One of my pet peeves of Jeddah is the lack of concern of all members of the community in making the city a better place for all.  And one of the biggest problems is the garbage, junk and piles of rubble everywhere that no one seems to take responsibility for.

There are hundreds - no thousands - of disabled, wrecked, and abandoned vehicles all over the streets of Jeddah.  These cars are not only an eyesore, but they often take up valuable parking spaces in a city with far too few parking spaces to start with.

Left Over Decorations

The red and blue banner hanging from the business sign is left over from a past Ramadan when this type of festive decoration is commonly seen around the city.  I would say it's similar to the patriotic red, white and blue pennants or swag banners that are hung around the 4th of July in the USA.

Arabic Calligraphy Jewelry

Arabic script is often incorporated into designs here, through artwork or jewelry.  These pendants caught my eye for their intricate details and appealing style.
