I'm a new expat from Maine USA. I got bored in the Kingdom.
Aside from the malls there's nothing to do except take a flight.
But recently I found a new store which is a first in Saudi arabia.
I first have to say I am not associated with them but since many other expats are not aware of it I thought I would share the news.
They sell Telescopes and robots. Yesterday i spent almost 3 hours with them. There's another american guy who works at the store I think.
I was always afraid to bring any equipment here so it's good now.
The owner is named Kamal. If you want to know where he's located it's on king abdullah road exit 10.
