Hay Wire

Many buildings in the oldest part of Jeddah called Al Balad have beautifully detailed wood carved doors..  Haphazard and dangerous electrical wiring as seen in this photo is also very common in this area of the city.  Unfortunately many of the oldest buildings in the city have been lost to fire because of hazards like this.

Yeah, there oughta be a law. That low wire looks especially dangerous. But oh how beautiful is the old door!

That door is a work of art but those wires are very scary to me.
