Two Great Outings and Arabic Dates

We’ve been in Jeddah for one month already. Things have been going wonderfully, and we are very happy. One of the officers here at the Consulate is a bit of a history buff and she organized two really amazing and unique cultural heritage outings for Consulate staff and families. We visited Khozam Palace, which was King Abdul Aziz’s palace in Jeddah built in the 1930s, and Beit Naseef, the most famous merchant house in Old Jeddah, where King Abdul Aziz stayed while Khozam Palace was being built.
