Saudi Arabia

     The magic kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I lived and worked here during the years 1989-1991. This was an interesting but also tough posting, as it was during the Gulf-war. Families were evacuated during the actual war and there were many restrictions on top of the ordinary ones as well. Photography was not always easy as many areas, buildings, including taking photos of people were restricted. The country which is 4 times larger than Sweden with a population of 33 million people is waste. It is also covered mainly by Rub Al-Khali dessert. The Nabatean kingdom dating back to 1st century C.E. had its stronghold in north-western Saudi Arabia - Madain Saleh - stretching up to Syria as well as Petra in Jordan. There are historical sights which can be visited (see enclosed travel report)
