Saudi Arabia Welcomes You....

A journal entry from: A Right Royal Saudi Adventure

The first thing you notice about Saudi Arabia (well what I noticed) is the fact that in summer it's really rather hot. I didn't really know what 50 degrees centigrade was like, but imagine putting your head in an oven and keeping it there. You could probably cook an egg on the pavement.

The second thing you notice is that all the Saudi guys are wearing the white Saudi dress, and the women are all covered up. The Saudi dress is called the Thobe and they wear something called a Shamar on their heads. I guess this helps keep the sun off.
