Jeddah Protest - Jan 29 2011

It's official, the demonstration in Jeddah is taking place in front of the Municipality in protest of the severe lack of infrastructure, and corruption, that led the city to be inundated this week causing billions of dollars of damages for the second time in two years.

The protest has it's own twitter feed : #JeddahProtests

News reports are saying that at least 50 people have been arrested by the police.

All our journeys are rhapsodies on the theme of discovery. We travel as seekers after answers we cannot find at home, and soon find that a change of climate is easier than a change of heart. The bittersweet truth about travel is embedded in the word, which derives from the older word travail, itself rooted in the Latin tripalium, a medieval torture rack.
