camel training / saudi arabia

The camel race near the town of hail did not take place this weekend, but we were able to watch the animals being trained. And then we were invited to stay with a family who own some of the animals. Even if communication often only works via electronic translator, the hospitality of the saudis is legendary.

petroglyphes / saudi arabia

In the “umm sinman mountains”, as in many places in the northwest of saudi arabia, there are rock carvings, some of which are up to 8000 years old. Some of the engravings are inscribed with writings that are also around 1000 years old and then there are “immortalizations” from more recent times. That’s why this world heritage site is now surrounded by a large fence.
