    1. Hi Afsal_Alif - It's much further north of Obhur. We left out of Durrat Al Aroos and it's even further north than that.

    1. Hi Layla - I thought about just letting people think the birds were in formation like that, but then I just couldn't do that! I saw a heart in the original photo right away, so I just tweaked it and moved a few around a bit.

  6. Nice post, I like how you alternated the man made with the wild. My favorite is the separate gates that everybody ignores.

  11. Hi Susie, congrats to all you for giving us a chance to get a bit more from Jeddah-KSA.
    As you are living there for sometime now, I would like to ask you, if possible, of course, some tips where to stay and how to beehive there as a business women. I am going to Jeddah in April and I am really confused with all the information I got from internet. Would you mind to give me some advice? Thanks!
