Partly cloudy 42°C — Riyadh, Saudi Arabia — #en #gr #travel


From my last trip to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. It's not my favourite country, but I have to say it felt a lot different since the last time I was here (something like 18 months ago?) in a positive way. Most visible change is the presence of women: you can see women working (last time I did not see even one woman working at the hotel, the company I was visiting, anywhere) and a good number of them don't have their faces covered. I even saw one driving.

View from the building I was working in. A relatively small number of buildings are higher than a few of storeys. As you can see most of the city has low buildings.

We had great a lunch at Najd Village
