Jeddah Slums

The dictionary defines "slum" as a thickly populated, run-down, squalid part of a city, inhabited by poor people.

Most of the slum housing in Jeddah is inhabited by foreign workers from poorer countries, like Bangladesh, Pakistan, and perhaps African countries.

Most of the residential doors in these areas are solid metal. Many are rusted and are painted bright colors.

The residents are not without their satellite dishes though...

Quite a different side of things.
