If you ever hear a lot of screaming coming from inside a high school gym, don’t be startled. It is probably a team of girls volleyball. I have never been to a volleyball game. The only volleyball I have encountered was in my days of high school. I just remember trying out and ouch. It hurts. The other time I witnessed volleyball was on the … Continue reading Earplugs, please.
We only got to stay in Jeddah for a day and a half. I cannot be a good judge of the town, but one thing is a fact: Jeddah is Karachi’s sis! ( Karachi, Pakistan not Karachi, Russia).
