Default Lawrence of Arabia formerly Desert Dubliner

You have only one reasonable solution, which you have dismissed. A baseball cap can be worn pretty much everywhere including indoors.

This sounds like a mutaw'ah trying to get some pointers.

Get caught with your private parts out in KSA and you'll get 20 lashes. That's what they need in Singapore.

Some of the hospitals are VERY modern. I had open-heart surgery there which, to my surrpise, and much to the dismay of my enemies, was a success ! My second daughter was born there - at Ghassan Pharaon in Jeddah.
GNP turned into a nightmare in the mean time. IMC is now hospital of choice for haves.

For nurses probably best to get into King Faisal, and deal with royals only.

No prob. Silver Sands you pay to get in 100SAR on weekend 50SAR during week. Al Bilad beach is similar. Sheraton beach requires membership. Others I don't know. Once in, bikini is the norm. No trouble.

Doha versus Jeddah like Ibiza versus Mordor for a single lady.

Compounds have bus services normally to a selected beach. Or else one has to endure an 'affordable' smelly taxi with a local or a Bangladeshi who speak little English and (in case of Bangladeshis) haven't seen a pussy in years.

Got my first SUV w/o row three thinking it wasn't needed. Bitterly regretted on many occasion.

Also not seen pussy in a decade and hence a threat. I only trust compound bus and limos for my wife. Some ladies use selected and tried / trusted 'private' drivers but for me they are like Doga dogs with a bone growing into their brain and you never know when they will flip.

Default Re: Charging passengers by weight

Was about time they stopped focusing on whether I have 20kg or 21.5kg when the guy sitting next to me is out of range of a domestic scale.
