Teatime

A modern tea shop in Al Jubail, KSA. It’s an interesting concept in a place where even every gasoline station has a coffee joint.

Sunbeams

Still another one from our drive to Al Khobar. A cloudy day is a rare occurrence and is rarer when we are traveling. The road that cuts across the frame is the highway connector to Riyadh and Al Hasa.
