Saudi Traffic Jam on the Road to Al Hofuf ....

I, with two of my work colleagues began the 350 km road trip from Riyadh to Al Hofuf in the Eastern Province yesterday morning, the driving being shared between Bader, my Saudi colleague and myself, I have become very used to the long road trips accross the vast open empty deserts as you head eaterwards, so we were rather taken when we took the exit to Al Hofuf from the Dammam Road to find ourselves in this Traffic Jam.......... thoughts of Molls Gap and Kerry Sheep came to mind.........

Two seperate groups of Camels were being moved along this highway and as you can see, they were observing a path to the edge of teh roadway, such obviously is their familiarity with this...

Be careful out there......
