Hi there!I am a czech girl living in Riyadh 2 months now, unfortunately not in a compound. This is a bit awkward to me to contact people like this, but it seems like it`s the only way.I dont have a husband and therefore it is a must to have friends here to be able to actually do anything here.I work only with 2 girls-one is lebanese and one filipina, which explains why i still know nearly as little as when I arrived. I tried my embassy but it seems like there is no real social bounding through them,no tours or anything else organised.If there are any other girls out there or anyone else willing to make friends even with people stuck outside compounds who like to explore the country and have fun, I would really appreciate if you get in touch. I am 27,photographer.Cheers!

Hi there.. good day. Is someone can help us to know about the city of rabigh in jeddah? Because my husband had an offer in one of the company there alsmtom.. how is the environment there. And please advice us if its better to live in jeddah place rather than rabigh. And it is advisable to family?please help us to know more about jeddah and rabigh... thank you so much.
anneosman replied on August 14, 2014 with:
I live in Jeddah. Jeddah is a huge, modern city with universities, shopping malls, many hospitals, and many other amenities. Because Jeddah is the port of the holy city of Makkah, people from all over the world visit it. I've never been to Rabigh, though, and I'm not sure how far it is from Jeddah. I've been told it's about a two hour drive, and I do have a friend who commutes daily. Rabigh is a university town, growing very rapidly as the university expands. It is said to be very modern and more liberal than other Saudi ciities, but I'm not sure that it would seem liberal to someone who had come from outside Saudi. For sure, you will find in Rabigh people of every nationality and every social background. Making friends with other expats will not be difficult. English is the language of the university, and most of the city's residents will speak English. I'd go there myself , if my husband and I both found jobs.

anneosman initially posted:
Where can a woman go swimming in Jeddah? I'm looking for a big, clean pool that has timings for women and possibly children but without men at the same time.
anneosman replied on August 12, 2014 with:
Thanks. I'd like to know, though, the specific places. Gold's Gym is too expensive for me, and the pool is small.
