Our World: Picnickers on Red Sea

Jeddah's coastline along the Red Sea stretches for miles and miles.  While there are some areas that offer seating and picnicking facilities, for the most part, public facilities for people to enjoy the great outdoors here in Jeddah are few and far between.

So people end up bringing carpets and placing them next to their parked cars so they can sit in the shade.  Other people bring their own folding chairs and even charcoal grills.  During the weekends the Corniche Road which runs along the Red Sea is crowded with cars and people.


Be sure to visit OUR WORLD TUESDAY, where family-friendly bloggers share a unique glimpse into what life is like all around our ever-amazing planet.

Even sitting by your car, looking out at that water is splendid.

Why hijabs are black, don't they absorb a lot of heat and be uncomfortable to wear in the heat of Saudi Arabia

Just curious,

There is no reason at all for why women are expected to wear black in the intolerable heat here. The only thing I can think of is to keep women at home because it's too hot to go out.
