These are some pictures taken while being driven around by Babba Khan. Myself and the girls call him when we are going to go out to an event, or for dinner. I tend to use the compound buses as well. However, when there is no compound bus to take me where I want to go I will call him. As it is not safe to go out on my own, and I enjoy some independence to do things when I want, the areas I frequent most by myself are the malls and the grocery store. It is safe and acceptable for a woman to be alone in these locations. Having a reliable driver to hire makes life here much easier mostly because it is safer to use someone you know. I don’t know my way around and would have no idea how to direct someone back to my house. I was able to find a vague map of the city in one of the free ‘things to do’ magazines called Destination Jeddah. It is actually an advertisement and has no specifics but at least I can see the area I live in compared to other areas around town.
