Mostly Visible Exhibit : JEDDAH ART WEEK


While  I was in Jeddah I was also lucky enough to visit the art exhibit held at Al Furusya Marina & Yacht Club titled “Mostly Visible”. The pieces at the exhibit were thought-provoking, witty and very visually engaging. Many of the installations were larger than life and warranted viewer interaction while others were marvels to stare at. I am so glad to have had the chance to visit the gallery. Well done to the executors of the exhibit and the talented contributors.

Here is what my eyes feasted on and now yours can too….

SEX AND BEYOND: Dr. Abdul AL-Lily.

Hey guys,
I was shocked when surfing the blogosphere and found this remarkable blog about the sexual culture of Saudi’s and couldn’t believe what I was reading. Not because sexual education is shocking to me but
rather that living in the Kingdom it is probably the most taboo issue to talk about. Not only was this blog brilliantly written it was written by a Saudi; first hand account of the culture. Turns out to be very refreshing, reading about issues most expats are often bewildered about. I kept the blog bookmarked
in my favorites’ folder and passed it on to all my expat girlfriends who, just like I were flabbergasted at what they found out. Please note I kept this very secret, never read it at work and only spoke about it to my expat friends and never local friends in fear of being somewhat ostracized.
