We arrived safely to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on July 13, 2015. Our travel with Jacqueline and Jonathan went very well – even with seven pieces of checked luggage, a stroller and two car seats! So far, we love Jeddah. The city is modern, with excellent roads, beautiful buildings, and great amenities. Our home is great. We live on a housing compound called Al-Basateen Village. We arrived during the last week of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month, during which Muslims fast during the day (they eat before dawn, and then after sunset). Following Ramadan is a weeklong celebration of Eid when most businesses are closed.
