Saudi Arabia 2006

Sunday, November 26, 2006

Saturday night we took the one hour flight from the west coast city of Jeddah to Riyahd the capital of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia! It is rainy and mild here, so I am reminded of home on the Oregon coast. Alot more traffic, honking horns, and uniformed police with sub-machine guns. A rapidly growing city, but orderly in most respects. The two distinctive buildings are the Al Faisaliah Hotel (pyramid shaped with globe restaurant where we are staying) and the Four Seasons Hotel that looks like a big bottle opener!
