Jeddah Waterfront Sign

In a country where just a few short years ago, a woman riding a bicycle in publc would have been considered scandalous or reason for her to be harassed or detained by the religious police, Saudi Arabia has come a long way in the past couple of years.  Today along Jeddah's Waterfront, women can be seen riding bicycles and jogging, enjoying the weather and enjoying life.

I love this symbol of Jeddah.  And so does everybody else!  And why not?  It's cool!

It has certainly dressed up Jeddah's coastline. I see it as a symbol of change, hope, and pride for the people of Jeddah.

It's a good spot for the sign.
