Men at the Birds and Animals Souk in Jeddah

Photos taken on my recent outing to the Birds and Animals Souk in Jeddah.  I only saw men there - I was the only woman around! I'm happy to report that just about everyone was wearing face masks.

Many men purchase sheep and goats prior to the holiday to make some extra cash.  They resell the livestock from their pickup trucks.

A busy time of year.

Does it feel uncomfortable being the only woman there?

Interesting photos. I chose to go to college my junior year in a Muslim country, Turkey, but it was secular then and Ataturk was admired. I will come back to visit your blog and see how you are doing in Arabia.
