Left the hotel an hour ago and now on the road to Jeddah where we stay for 3 days. We will travel for 600km or so and then find a bushcamp.
The sand around here is a bit less sandy than before and there are more shrubs and tufts of strong green grass. There seems to be a lot of motorway construction work going on.
The weather is warm and sunny.
Earlier, near Jazan, but not too near, we passed by what looks like a workers barracks or modern day slave quarters.
