Default Interesting article on Saudi by BBC

Quite a good read if your bored, gives a different view on the place.

"In one corridor, I spotted a teenage girl talking to a young man.

Her abaya - the black all-enveloping gown that Saudi women are obliged to wear - was open, exposing a red top and just the slightest glimpse of her cleavage."

It's not that surprising as Saudi is really changing and not at all what people tell you.

We've lived here 8 months now and love it - so relaxing, safe, more time to spend together as a family, standard of living is better as it is still quite cheap to live here and even wearing the abaya has it's advantages.

Definately recommend it.
