Jeddah: Old & New

Jeddah is a city of stark contrasts, where the old is mixed with the new, where elaborate palaces are built next door to decrepit hovels, and where the society is as black and white as the clothing that its women and men wear.  This photo was taken in Al Balad, the oldest section of Jeddah, which is home to old crumbling buildings as well as modern new skyscrapers.

That's a strange contrast.

I guess city planning isn't an idea that has any following.
