Jeddah| Summer All the Way!

It is so hotΒ -can I say, scorching (?) in Saudi Arabia lately. As in hot. When you go to the car, you can’t even immediately sit down. You have to either let the car get cool inside for about a minute or two or leave it open for awhile until all that heat say goodbye.

I know for sure that if you are from America or Europe you’ll be surprised to know that our temperature here for summer reaches 38-45 degrees Celsius, while winter in Saudi Arabia is 13-16 πŸ˜‚ That’s like summer in other countries! Although there are some high places in Saudi like Hail, Abha, and Taif that are really cold, here in Jeddah and Riyadh, it’s just really summer, mild summer, and intense summer most of the time. πŸ˜‚

Here are some photos I took the other day while inside the car. It was already hot inside. I feel for the people who were outside that time. It’s like you are inside an oven.

I can’t wait for rain to finally pour down. 🌞😌

By the way, here are 10 Ways to Beat the heat

    1. No. πŸ™‚ Dependents are not allowed to drive. 😁Only those who are under the company’s sponsorship are allowed. πŸ™‚ I don’t know why the photos won’t appear. It appears on my mine.

  1. Those are really good shots of damas trees in the middle of the road, Gilian. I’ve always been amazed at how these trees thrive so well in the extreme heat and dryness of this region.

    1. Ohh. I’ve been wondering what those trees are called. Yes, they are watered every day. πŸ˜‚ I also wonder about the same thing. It’s amazing how they can survive the heat here.
