Inside the Kingdom: My Life in Saudi Arabia by Carmen Bin Ladin
Inside the Kingdom: My Life in Saudi Arabia

m.orombelli, October 28, 2007

I do not think that Carmen has been very accurate in describing her experience. I am inclined to believe that her writings are no more than bitter grapes at a relationship that went bad. Every culture has laws, do's and don'ts, one cannot expect as an outsider to come to a country and turnaround the culture to suit their own lifestyle! I have lived in Saudi for 25 years as a consultant often working with members of Royal family, they are the most generous and respectful people I have ever worked with. Their women are respected and pampered, and live a lifestyle that any European lady could only experience in her dreams. Yes, there would be the odd one out, who would like to live the European culture of affairs, and roaming the streets with less than gracious clothing, yet enjoy Saudi wealth; Clearly Saudi, the centre of Islam, is not the right place for this behaviour, Bahrain or Dubai would be a more intelligent option.
