Thursday Market, Qatif Suqs

(wet and livestock market)

  

I always asked permission first before taking photos because photographs are usually not allowed in Qatif Suqs/markets.

 

It's always a pleasure for the male locals to be photographed.

 

"We must also be courteous by adhering to the local customs. Dress must be conservative to all. Shorts should not be worn by either male or female. Women should wear abaya."

 

I was even asked here to cover my head.
