Here is Angela in her abaya. While working in Saudi, she
was required to dress like this whenever we
left the "compound" where we lived. So, that means at work, at the store, at restaurants, this was
her look. The "compound" has tall walls around it and guards at the gate, though whether the security was
there to protect us from the Saudis or them from us is hard to know.
(After we left, there have been several attacks on similar compounds, so apparently the guards are
meant to protect the residents from Saudis...)
These are scenes from a camel market near Riyahd, Saudi Arabia. We've heard stories of salesmen earnestly trying to sell camels to foreigners at the markets, but no one thought we looked like buyers. So, we just wandered around and looked at the camels for sale.
