Saudi Arabia, Old Jeddah Market

The men wear white

The market of old Jeddah is exactly that. The area is a warren of old buildings and narrow alleyways. Some of the streets are covered to protect against the hot sun. Unfortunately, I was there twice during the afternoon siesta. I am told that after dark the streets are crowed. Still I was able to seem some of the old architecture, which has been run down and in renovation for more than twenty years. There were enough people around to give me some photo ops.

And women dress in black

Colorful, I wasn't brave enough to try it

Gaudy, it's the fashion

At home they wear this under the abaya

Flat bread to go

Lottery

The beggars are in black too

Date store, it's middle eastern

They feed the pigeons too

Walking sticks

Tea pots

Antique store
