This is the first view (after the MacDonalds restaurant) of Saudi Arabia, having cleared customs at the Saudi-Bahrain causeway.
I recently found out (20th May 2004) that you are no longer allowed to take flowers to people staying in hospitals, in Saudi Arabia.
I knew earlier this month - May 2004 an Egyptian Cleric had banned yoga, and so I searched the internet to find out what else is banned in Saudi Arabia.
Apart from the obvious things of pork, alcohol, and women driving and working and not showing any part of their body in public, the following things are banned:
phones with digital cameras
music in public spaces
changing rooms in clothes shops
manequins for female clothes
barbie dolls (dec 03)
stuffed animal toys
pokeman cards (march 01)
anything to do with Harry Potter (sept 02)
christinanity, christmas, christmas decorations, crucifixes,
models of buddah
chickens from Europe
soft drinks from Europe (aug 02)
milk powder from america
cigarettes (riyadh may 03)
national geographic magazine (only april 2003 edition)
