“No Reservations” Show in Jiddah, Saudi Arabia

As I was perusing the Muslimah Media Watch blog, which is in my blogroll over there, I found this YouTube clip of Anthony Bourdain’s show “No Reservations” in Jiddah, Saudi Arabia. This YouTube clip I’m posting here is just the first segment; if you go to YouTube I think you can find the rest.

I’m no expert on Saudi Arabia, but from what I’ve read, this freedom that Mr Bourdain and his Saudi guide enjoy to eat and socialize in public freely (the guide is a woman) doesn’t exist in Riyadh. If you had to go to Saudi Arabia, Jiddah would be the place to go.

  1. Assalâm ‘alaikum,

    OK, I just saw this part, but I want to thank you. It’s a good sensation to have another insight of Saudi Arabia, even if that’s not the true reality of other towns, as you pointed out. Nevertheless, I liked the way they talk, and how Jiddah was shown.

    Congratulations, by the way, for the blog.
    Ma’a assalâma.
