I've posted many photos over the years of the fascinating sculptures of Jeddah. Some can no longer be found, as they did not fare well in the brutal elements of this place.  You can see more of these sculptures by clicking on the Sculptures tab under my header at the top.  You will be amazed at the wide varietyof sculpture this city has.

Jeddah Covid-19 Business Restrictions

A new wave of Covid-19 restrictions has been implemented for businesses here in Saudi Arabia.  Restaurants may only provide take out food to customers now, so it was interesting to see how the normal seating areas of these mall restaurants have dealt with the new rules.  The above photos shows how the tables have been rearranged to block off entry and all the chairs have been removed.  

This restaurant has removed all tables and chairs altogether and has blocked entry into the normal seating area.  

This restaurant too has removed all normal seating and takes orders at the entrance.  I saw photos taken at another mall recently with all seating gone at the food court.  I was shocked, however, to see that customers actually got their food and sat on the floor there to eat it, totally defeating the whole purpose of these new health regulations.
