    Something a lot of people miss...

    by BadLlama Written Aug 26, 2002

    Something a lot of people miss when visiting the region is not technically in Jiddah but a little town in the mountains nearby called Taif. It's a quaint little out of the way place where sheep herders woalk through the streets and someone may try to buy your girlfriend for a few camels (this is not a good deal, most western girls are worth at least two camels and a goat). The ride up will provide adventure too as it's populated by baboon gangs. Keep the doors locked with them, they're liable to carjack you if you're not careful!
