We went to a traditional Saudi restaurant, Thelathi, for some chicken, mutton, and baby camel. It's not bad, but I liked the mutton better.
The next night we went to a student's desert farm. They grow peppers and relax outside of the city there. I explored outside of the farm and came across a large sheep farm, met the herder Mohammed, and checked out their white camel.
Our hosts were very gracious and served us snacks, tea, coffee, before cooking up a great bbq meal. They cooked it Saudi-style, by dropping the chicken and rice down into a steel barrel buried in the ground
The Saudis we've met here are SO friendly...very kind, devoted, polite, and helpful!
